Hi. This is all in the perspective of my son, I am just writing down everything he says. He is 17 and this is his dad. Understood.Okay so one of my friends threw a party at my other friends house. The other friend was not present but gave permission to my friend to throw the party And you know this how? and when did you learn this, that the homeowner would not be there?
and even left his house open for everyone to get in. Later that night, his cousins found out and showed up at the house and called the cops. I just showed up at the party for a while, didnt drink, and then went home. Did you see the police when they came?
When i got home, I got a phone call from the cousins claiming that they were gonna press charges on me, because I am their main suspect. Cousins can't press charges, only the authorities can. Moreover, what do they say was the CRIME?
I didn't even throw the party, I just showed up! Can they even press charges? And if so, will I be affected?I am still trying to figure out what the alleged crime is? Can you clarify?

But I do look forward to your above responses so I can provide more legal information details.
