Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Wow..... I can't believe I can become implicated although I was NOT involved and had no idea whatsoever what the guy was doing. Initially, I had no worried at all because I knew I was not involved. But to learn I can become implicated so easily is worrisome.
Can I be indicted simply because the defendant mentions my name? Doesn't his testimony need to be corroborated? I have no reason to believe he will bring me up because I was not involved, but many are saying I should expect anything from him because he wants to save himself.
Do the emails and texts help me?
Does the fact that I was away help me?
Should I really be worried? How worried?
Sorry for all the questions, I will provide a tip.
I'm still waiting. Thanks.
Thank you for replying. I guess listening to people who watch too much TV tends to get you worked-up. I am confident the only thing I'm guilty of was trusting someone to do his job and putting my faith in him. I was not involved, nor was I aware of his intentions AT ALL. I am just shocked at the revelations. And more shocked that I was stupid enough to think he was an actual professional.
Once again, thanks for the answer.
