Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
-Could you explain your situation a little more?I am having a difficult time understanding what happened. What does your son's hat have to do with anything?
Whose house was broken into?
Where did the guns come from?
How did driving the friend to his girlfriend's house result in a B&E?
DearCustomer- Obviously I cannot understand why, based on theses facts, he would have been charged. What he needs to do is get a lawyer or, if he cannot afford a lawyer, ask the court to appoint one. He shouldn't discuss the case with anyone but a lawyer and he should plead not guilty. I don't know who was the victim and I can't see how driving a friend to his girlfriend's house would equal breaking and entering. He definitely needs legal representation to get to the bottom of all of this.
The only possible scenario I can think of is if he was driving the car and the friend broke into a house and then got back in the car your son would be considered an accessory to the crime much like a person driving a getaway car in a bank robbery. In any event he should not plead guilty until all the facts are known and reviewed by an attorney.
