-Could you explain your situation a little more?What crime are you being charged with?
Was the judgment against the property you sold?
I have a judgment against me for a credit card debt for more than $20,000, the Sheriff came by with a notice on the date the notice expired to inform me he may want to take my Car and Boat that are in my name, although I remember the summons, I do not remember getting a exempt form or notification that I had the judgment aginst me, I have subsaquently transfered the title for both the car and the boat in other family members names after the sheriff's visit, now the Sheriff is telling me I broke the law and I will be contacted by others on wheather charges will be brought against me.
Again, I did not know a judgment was a lien on my property at the time I made the transfers, I know that now, but is there any thing I can do?
Thank you that is helpful, but the Sheriff said I was notified to attach the property, but I don't remember receiving anything like that, can they prove criminal intent?
