TexLawyer : Good evening. I'll be assisting you with your question.
TexLawyer : There is nothing stopping her from making accusations, but that doesn't mean you will be arrested or charged with a crime.
TexLawyer : Her accusation will likely be the beginning of an investigation, but the police frequently look into things that never result in an arrest or charge of any kind.
TexLawyer : I know it can be hard and scary, but you have to trust the system. In my experience, it almost always comes to the right result, even if it takes a while.
TexLawyer : My guess is that the police will interview your aunt and get a sense rather quickly that she's not all there.
JACUSTOMER-whzae4ii- : Do i need to file a counter poluce report, do i pay the acct off anyway? Can i sue her for emotional distress and defamation?
TexLawyer : If she is truly confused, she has not committed a crime, so filing a police report on your own won't do much for you.
TexLawyer : If you opened up the account with her permission, you should pay it off.
TexLawyer : As far as suing her for defamation, in theory that is possible, but the problem is that you will have a difficult time proving that you were financially damaged. If you have to hire an attorney, it is possible you would be able to recover that amount of money from her, but it may not even get to that point.
TexLawyer : Do you have any questions?
TexLawyer : If not, please remember to "rate" my answer. Good luck. Also, if you have any questions in the future, you can direct them to me by putting "this question is for TexLawyer" in the title.
