yes first they charged me with receiving money under false pretenses. Then they amended it to Felony Embezzlement. The only thing they show in the discovery is the police detectives statement who says that he called me on the phone and I told him that I had sold the vehicle and used the funds to pay for other cars at the auction. I actually did not say all that and he is lying but it is true and not illegal as I understand it because I OWNED the car after she signed it over. Her accompanying statement is the only OTHER evidence to speak of. From what i understand she is going to say that even though she signed the title she TRUSTED me to give her back ALL the money from the sale. Which is not true!
Thanks, speaking of recording I also have a recording of her and I detailing the deal and she clearly says YES KEEP THE MONEY! Think she knows she knows someone in the prosecutors and or complained to the DA supervisor office so they wont do anything other than a misdemeanor no jail time please with me PAY HER. I refuse and just would prefer to take it to trial and play my tapes!
