Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for your advice. I have another follow up question to ask. I'll be more specific this time. Let's say I take a buck knife and glide it along my ex boyfriends car from the hood to the trunk. Only on one side of the car. Let's say I do the same exact thing to his new lovers car. If I do it in the middle of the night and there is no one around to witness the crime. Then let's say he takes a warrant out on me for doing this. Yet he can't prove it. So the police come to my home with a warrant for my arrest. I go to jail for however long it takes for my trial to be heard, I guess is how it works. Then I just get up on the stand and deny the entire thing, he has no way of proving it. I have a spotless criminal record. Wouldn't I get off with community service? Maybe even walk off free because he has no proof of what I did?
Thanks so much for the positive rating and generous bonus, it is very much appreciated!
