My husband was just subpoenaed from the DA regarding a

My husband was just subpoenaed from the DA regarding a domestic violence case that his friend committed. The friend kidnapped and beat the crap out of his estranged wife and then called my husband to tell him about it. My husband told him to take her home or let her go ASAP or I(me) would call the cops. 10 minuted later her and their daughter were on our doorstep. My husband does not want to be involved. He does not want to testify against his friend...his estranged wife (the victim) doesn't want my husband to get involved either. By him testifying means the difference between a 3 year sentence and a 15 yr sentence. He doesn't want that on his conscious for putting away his friend. The have all the evidence they need- pictures, doctors notes, hospital visits, testimony from other people. How can he get out of testifying???JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen? Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: great state of California...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: It happened about 9 months ago. It's going to trial because the stupid idiot didn't take a plea!

A and are former relational partners who are now disputing

A and B are former relational partners who are now disputing ownership of their dog. A funded the dog's purchase, vet bills, food and general upkeep. B was the one who picked up the dog and supposedly signed 'papers' with the seller. In several written communications both A and B refer to the dog as 'theirs.' Now that they have split up, A is keeping the dog at her house, since B went to stay with his father whose landlord does not permit pets. However, B is not happy with how A is keeping the dog. B went to A's house against her explicit request to stay away and took the dog. He feels confident that he can claim ownership with the 'papers'. The dog isn't a registered breed but in addition to not being allowed in his father's apartment, it is an illegal breed in the state that B took the dog to. What can A do to reclaim the dog? Has B committed anything criminal?
