The Police Serached my House last night

Sat, 01-17-2009 - 9:06am

I had taken my girls out to the movies to see Bedtime Stories and I got a call from my lawyer. The Police were in the process of getting a warrant to search my home. I had to drop my girls off at my parents house, return home and wait for my attorney & the police.


The got really pizzed that the bedroom and living room were empty and I told them where the furniture was. At that point my attorney stepped in and handled it. The Police wanted me to come to the "station" to answer some questions but my lawyer again asked if I was under arrest? The answer was no. I will be going to the Police Station at 10am.


My sisters are going to take the girls shopping today while I am answeing their questions.


It seems that the OM was dealing small amounts of Coke out of his office. He is also trying to spin it that my W was areally the dealer. He is doing everything he can to paint my W as the dealer.


After dealing with the Police I need to see my In Laws and let them know what is going on. My W will need to hire her own

How would your attorney find this out before they show up at your door with the warrant? If they're investigating your wife, what would they know about you and any attorney you have?

JACK:

I AM SO SORRY - I AM SURE YOU ARE FEELING A BIT OVERWHELMED RIGHT NOW. AND GOD KNOWS WE CAN ALL UNDERSTAND WHY.

I KNOW I SPEAK FOR ALL OF US - WE ALL WISH WE LIVED CLOSED, ON THE SAME STREET AND COULD COME OVER AND HELP YOU IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE.

THEY IT IS ALWAYS DARKEST BEFORE THE DAWN - WELL YOUR DAWN IS COMING ON REAL FAST MY FRIEND, IT HAS TO BE.

YOU KNOW I WAS AGAINST YOU BRING ANY CHARGES AGAINST THE GUY INITIALLY, BUT NOW WITH THIS. GO AFTER THE COMPANY - YOU HAVE A MAJOR CASE - I KNOW THAT MONEY DOES NOT SOLVE PROBLEMS, BUT UNFORTUANTELY IT IS THE ONLY HAMMER YOU CAN USE IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS TO GET THEIR ATTENTION.

PLEASE, CONTINUE TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR GIRLS, AS YOU HAVE BEEN DOING. LITTLE GIRLS NEED THEIR DADDYS, ALWAYS AND FOREVER. YOU ARE THEIR PILLAR OF STRENGTH RIGHT NOW. BUT DO NOT FORGET TO REACH OUT TO YOUR FRIENDS FOR SOME ADDED HELP.

Jack, I am so sorry that you are in the middle of this. You sound like an amazing father, and I'm so glad that you have family support from your parents. Try to stay strong for your girls.

Listen to your attorney. Lawyers are the butt of so many jokes, but can be a life-line when you need them.

I hope that this is over for you soon,

Big hugs and prayers,

n

I want to thank everyone for their support.


I went down to the Police Station today at 10am to answer any questions that the police had. I got there a few minutes early and the police tried to get me into their interrogation room without my lawyer. I politely refused thir offer to "set the record straight".


When my lawyer arrived we sat down and I answered their questions. I loved how they would ask the same question in a different way. After 90 minutes of answering their questions they indicated that I would not be leaving the Police Station. They could not hold me for any charges so they thought that they could hold me as a "material witness". My lawyer had a fit and went to see the "Duty Judge" and I was released 7:45pm.


The Police have indicated that I may "destroyed evidence" by moving furniture out of the house. They are trying to get me to testify against my W. They then indicated that would freeze all of my bank accounts and try to starve my business so that I would be forced to testify against my W or loose my business. Unfortunetly from them I am third generation real estate developer and I have many contacts that will lend me the funds needed to keep my company running.


I haave found out the OM was using a series of shell companies to launder money and other things.


My girls are home now and we will be going to Church tomorrow.


My In Laws have hired a Criminal Attorney for my W and they are doing what they need to do. My W is in the Detox process now and her parents are acting as her guardian.


The Police made one really HUGE mistake today. They threatened to take my girls away. Not going to happen. I will spend every last cent I have to protect them.


The weird things is that I seem to have lost the anger. Right now I am just determined to protect my family from OM, W and the Police.

absolutely unbelievable.

i am telling you EACH AND EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THE WORLD THINKING ABOUT CHEATING SHOULD READ YOUR STORY.

but then, they would simply pooh pooh it, 'that would never happen to me, my lover is different'

i am also thinking of the wife of this piece of crap, she is probably like you 'a deer in headlights'
