Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I'm sorry for the delay in viewing your response. Amex called me to verify the charge and I was already back in the cabin. I have no Internet in VA. I have to travel i hour to the library to get online.
I have another question I forgot to ask.
Since my daughter had just turned 20 years old before the bondsman had her sign the bond contract, I was wondering if it's a leagally binding contract. Both she and the other 20 year old girl who signed the "note" for the remaining $3500 due to make up the 10% down required were 20 years old.
They had and put up NO collateral for the 5% remaining bond loan.
Don't you have to be 21 to sign a legal contract?
And, are both girls severally and individually on the hook for the whole $3500?
Also, when I retain an atty to speak with the bondsman, do I want a criminal atty? When you say she may still be in trouble legally for inter-state flight or audung and abedding, ...how can she be in trouble for inter-state flight if she was not in trouble with the law when she left FL???? And is it merely your opinion or s fact of law that she can be in trouble for aiding/abedding? What does the law say? Where can I look it up?
I will be leaving the library now and checking your reply in a day or two.
Thank you for your time.
