My question involves the state of. I have a friend who owns

My question involves the state of Virginia. I have a friend who owns an automobile restoration business. He recently was arrested for obtaining money under false pretenses and grand larceny. Apparently he took deposits and hasn't done any work and still has the vehicles and money. I heard that he was arrested for pretty much the same thing a year ago, so if he's on probation I understand that these new charges would make it a probation violation - am I correct? And this would lower his chances of getting bond this time? I'm not EXACTLY sure what is going on, and I think the less I know the better off I am...but here is what leads me to your website: he requested that I contact a few of his customers and tell them he is out of town due to an emergency with his mother and will contact them as soon as he returns (his bond hearing is scheduled for the 7th of July, and the chances of him getting out are not so great). If he does not get out on bond and his customers find out where he is (which it's only a matter of time as far as I can see), can I then be charged with lying to his customers? Is there ANYTHING that can happen to me legally? I don't have a good feeling about doing this but for some reason felt I needed to see if my gut instinct is correct.

I've already succeeded in dismissing the underlying Criminal

I've already succeeded in dismissing the underlying Criminal Court charges on two counts of grand larceny, but there's a sealed indictment on bail jump in the Supreme Court that I'm not sure if any application might be made to dismiss, under any theory.Facts: Defendant was charged with two counts of grand larceny back in 2002, was arraigned, and thereupon jumped bail. He fled to Trinidad. Family came to me in July 2014 and informed me that pursuant to CariCom (Caribbean Community)Treaty with U.S., Defendant cannot be issued a visa to leave country if there is an outstanding warrant on him - absent the warrant being made extraditable. In essence, a prisoner in his own country forever. In discussion with DA I only made known that the Defendant was in Trinidad but offered no specific address at the time. DA offered that if Defendant came up to U.S. and pled guilty to lesser misdemeanor on the grand larcenies, and that he'd also plead guilty to the felony bail jump, he'd get time served (the couple of days he'd be in process when he returned to U.S.) Thereupon, the warrants would be vacated, and the case would be closed.But, (A) Defendant couldn't leave Trinidad, and (B) A second ADA who I was referred to, who was in charge of making warrants extraditable, expressed the DA's office would not spend time and resource to make the warrant extraditable. After six months, I filed 30/30 in Criminal Court under the assigned docket number citing 1) time chargeable to People since 6 months before when I told them he was in Trinidad, and 2) DA's not having exercised due diligence in making any inquiry whatever into Defendant's whereabouts after I had informed them he was in Trinidad. DA did not oppose, Judge granted it, dismissed and sealed.But, the warrant on the sealed indictment for bail jumping was still outstanding in Supreme Criminal Term. In discussion with the supervisory ADA in the Supreme Criminal Term, I stated the facts and asked - in light of the underlying charges having been dismissed - if the People might vacate the warrant and dismiss the sealed indictment, or alternatively, make the same offer concerning the bail jump as the Criminal Court had, i.e. plead guilty to bail jump, time served and warrant vacated. The ADA expressed that if the underlying charges were dismissed he's put it on the calendar; expressed that I need not come back to Court; and that he'd "take care of it" and notify me. Subsequently, I got an email from him referring me to the same ADA (same guy who did not make the underlying grand larceny warrant extraditable) and who expressed that they would make arrangements for a limited use visa for Defendant to surrender on the warrant. (I think they might have gotten egg on their face because they didn't make the warrant extraditable the first time and my 30/30 motion to dismiss was granted.)Question: Even if the DA would make the same offer as the Criminal Court (i.e. plead guilty to felony bail jump, sentence time served) is there any theory under law, before he voluntarily surrendered, that I might invoke that would support a dismissal of the sealed indictment? Under CPL 210 there are ample grounds for moving to dismiss indictments, but not sealed ones as far as I can see. Is there a difference? Does the fact that the DA's office knew of the Defendant's whereabouts, as they had in Criminal Court, in some way find them, in Supreme Criminal Term, subject to 30/30? Am I precluded from any motion because the Defendant was never arraigned on the sealed indictment, and thus no time could be made chargeable to the People? Any views?
