I hate to spend people's money for them - but if it were my child I would get that child a lawyer since they will very likely need one. Clearly multiple laws were broken in this scenario.

Ok and should my other son call and let them know it was and erra about the car being stolen

We can't give you legal advice on what to do or not do but you might want to consider being VERY cautious about letting ANY person in your family involved in this speak to the police without legal representation. There are a number of potential pitfalls if you do!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
