Ok. . .on January 18th, 2007 I was arrestted for a probation violation and sentenced to 4 years in Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ–prison). After serving 16 months, I was let out on parole. I have gone back to my old apartment to see if I can recover any of my property, but the landlord says a few different stories. keep in mind that I had no intention of moving out, my lease was up on the next month, my parents tried to recover the property by showing power of attorney papers, and I owed around $350 for the months rent unpaid.
So the landlord (D) says first that he trashed everything because noone ever came to pick it up and people were breaking in taking stuff. Then he calls back and says he remembers that he kept somethings and thinks that the old apt. manager may have taken others. He told me the third time that he sold everything to the new renters for $300.
Do I have a right to my things? If so, how do I go about getting them?
