My question involves criminal law for the state of: Nevada
This is going to be a weird post. Last year, after I had answered a request from a Department of Treasury Special Agent to report for a meeting regarding a company I had worked for at the time, my employer had me arrested under what is referred to as a Legal 2000. I legally answered the Special Agent’s request who informed me of the investigation my former employer had been under for some time.
The founder of the company was responsible for a third of a billion dollar tax scam.
I did not return back to the office. I returned back to my apartment where in a few minutes after I got home, I found I had been arrested under what is referred to as a Legal 2000 by false charges filed by my employer. The investigator who was assigned to my case verified the charges and investigation with the Department of Treasury agent and I was released within hours, free and clear. The federal officer had confirmed my story to the local official.
Upon return to my apartment later in the afternoon, I found my cellphone stolen, and my apartment ransacked. But items such as my computer and other valuables were still there. I feared for my life, packed what I needed and left my apartment for a couple of weeks to a friends house out of town where I knew I would be safe.
I cancelled my old cell phone the next day away from my apartment and got a new one with a different carrier.
In the ensuing weeks, I had a restraining order served by my former employer. A couple of months later I had learned that I was under an investigation by the local police filed by the CEO of my former employer. The charges were false. I apparently, when 350 miles away and working temporarily for another employer out of town, threatened this person in daylight and seen fleeing with “rifles” in the back of my truck. I was charged with violating this restraining order.
In addition, I apparently had sent threatening emails. I could not for the house I was staying was empty and there were no phone/cable etc lines running into it. I have no wireless card on my computer.
The first attorney knew of the gentleman who started the company. He knew he was a known racketeer and con man. The second attorney who opened up an office was from out of state.
A couple of weeks later I was in court asking to explain myself. Despite the facts from the Treasury Agent, and credit card receipts verifying my location at the time, I was charged with violation of the restraining order and the court has taken up this matter. I have the threat of arrest hanging over my head.
In the ensuing year, this former employer has stole my identity five times. A new criminal investigation was opened by a TIGTA officer when I had verified the facts. My old boss was terminated.
In addition, on my land line, when I answer the phone, I have received death threats. I have reported this to the local police. I have moved and am trying to lie as low as I can. I don’t know what to do. I know the facts are disjointed, but, I need legal help. It takes several years for a federal investigation to run its course.
I am in fear of my life. This founder of this business partner was found dead about eighteen months prior in his car from an assumed self inflicted gun shot wound. But, when I read the blogs, there are questions as to whether this is a legit suicide. The only thing I did was to report to a Federal Agent when requested. I did nothing illegal or unethical, as the Treasury agent has attested to.
