Hello,

If there's no warrant out for his arrest and he is not yet charged with anything, the answer is that you are probably not committing a crime by sending him home, if by that you mean paying for his airline tickets. However, just to be on the safe side, please give me the US state in which this is taking place, so that I can look up the statute.

Thanks for the reply. I've looked over the Alabama Obstructing justice statute and it doesn't apply to your situation. Again, if there's no warrant, no charges, and he's not under court mandate, he's at liberty to travel freely wherever he chooses and your helping him to go home would not constitute a crime.
