Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. Can you be criminally be charged for what? Failure to abide by the contract and finish the project?
I asked what it is you are concerned that you could be criminally charged for?
I other words, you asked if you could be criminally charged. I need to know what crime you think that you might possibly be charged with?
Do you think it is a crime for you to breach a contract?
Thanks for the clarification.
Actually I spent a few years representing contractors in suits by their customers and I have seen this before.
You are absolutely not in any danger of being charged with a crime. All you did was go over budget and are now unable to complete the project. I am sure that you didn't plan it this way.
No crime has been committed and the worst thing that can happen is that they sue you in civil court for breach of contract. And all you need to do is file bankruptcy and that will eliminate the debt that they claim against you based on the breach of contract.
You have no criminal liability based on this incident.

If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.If I have already provided you with the information you asked for, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you?Thanks in advance,Doug
