Customer Question

Hi - I had a guy at my house for about a day and a half and found out he was here on a violation of his parole. (We partied a bit...He should have been in by 10pm). He is in court today to find out what is going to happen to him. I had no idea he was on parole. He was in the last week of his parole, his parole officer believes he will be sentenced to another month.

Why do you feel that you would be liable in any way?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had the stuff we partied with.
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.

It is very unlikely that the police will be interested in you. They generally do not take the time to pursue someone who has illegal substances for their own use.

So it is very unlikely that you will be charged. You certainly did not know that this person was involved in the criminal justice system and cannot be blamed for his actions.

Ok...thank you. Certainly a lesson learned
