Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I typed in additional information on the second screen but I don't think you ever got it. Basically, my friend is married to this guy that we think has antisocial personality disorder and possibly more. He has a history of breaking the law over 80 times (driving without a license, insurance, registration, seatbelt, in the hov, hunting without a license, spotlighting, shooting from a vehicle on hwy, writing fraudulent checks, DUIs, fighting, motorcycle without a license...the list goes on) He has no regard for the law or others. He was found on Match.com saying he is divorced and with PhD but he is a dropout. He has a girlfriend on the side that is probably being lied to like my friend. He has about 4 lawsuits supposedly written off in the bankruptcy. He used my friend's credit behind her back and bought a viper, eventually bankrupted them. When they turned his gas off, he cut off the lock. When they tried to repo the car, he drove away. Now he is trying to get out of child support saying he lost his job or he will get his boss to give him less income and more perks. He is accusing the lawyer of sleeping with his client and calling him names. All this around kids and this is barely touching on what is going on there. She just got a protective order today. Isn't there any kind of legal action just against a person in general almost like a class action for all of his bad behavior? He isn't accountable anywhere. Each person has to sue him for restitution? Thanks. It is just so frustrating to me!
