Customer Question

Customer: i rented a car for someone and they have not returned it since 10-7-15 I made a report with the car place and the cops but the cops havent put it on the hot list yet.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: i put this person on as a driver so I cant report it stolen bacause i put him on as a driver. I paid for 2 weeks extra before they would consider reporting it.

Thanks for the reply.

Who is "they?" And what is the question that you want to ask with regard to this? From what I see, you may end up with some civil liability, since you're the one who rented the car. But you wouldn't have any criminal liability unless the state wants to try to prove that when you rented the car for someone else, you knew that person intended to steal it.
