RGMacEsq :

When do you have to pay, and what paperwork are you referring to?

Customer :

He wrote bill of sale with payment plan. Now he stated he filed charges for stolen items that where in the store.

RGMacEsq :

When did (or do) you have to pay?

RGMacEsq :

And do you have a copy of the bill of sale?

Customer :

yes I have copy of the bill of sale. nothing in talked of moving from the location and he had said it was ok to move but now different story

RGMacEsq :

Do you have any evidence of him saying it was okay (witnesses, text, email, etc...) or was it verbal between just the two of you?

Customer :

yes it was verbal and yes i have witness

RGMacEsq :

Thank you. You said that no payment was due to the party yet. When is it due?

Customer :

When i moved it was due on june 20th on june 21 he stated filed charges. so made no paymt

Customer :

correction payment due 20th of june moved 14 june called on the 15 said charges filed

RGMacEsq :

I would tell him that he had no right to file charges when payment was not due yet, but you're willing to pay him upon him dropping the charges against you.

Customer :

great will do should i have him sign paper saying that and he has no further claim

RGMacEsq :

Yes. But ultimately, he couldn't really bring any criminal charges against you (at least successfully) because you have a bill of sale regarding this. The police would essentially tell him that this is a civil matter (breach of contract) and not criminal. But it is best to get his written consent to this matter, that he will drop the charges and not pursue any cause of action, criminal or civil once he is paid this amount. Make sure that you give him a check so that you can track that he deposits it.
