My question involves defamation in the state of: Florida
A former employee stole almost $50,000 of my money, when confronted with the theft this person signed a confession, agreed to pay back the money, then promptly packed up and left the State.
In order to prosecute I need to know where this person has gone. If I were to write, or speak to, their known friends and/or associates, it is likely the reason for my wanting to locate the thief will come to light. It is likely that sharing such information will cause the felon 'emotional distress'. Nothing I would say would be untrue. I have irrefutable proof of the theft, but by making contact with these people, will I be putting myself in a position that the felon may sue me over?
