  • Are parents liable for unknown criminal acts of their children if those acts were discovered when the child is an adult?

    Suppose a child committed a criminal act years ago. Now they are an adult and are accused of that crime. Is there any liability on the parents if they were unaware of the crime that may have taken place in the past when the child was a minor?

    James’s Answer

    Parents are rarely held criminally liable for the acts of their children. Civil liability, however, is an entirely different issue. Your question also touches on a violation of the statute of limitations. I recommend that you or the child contact a criminal defense attorney.

    He was not aware that by pleading guilty it would suspend his lic and would like to have a trial to state his case. person in car who had it would not admit officer appreciated his honesty and told him it was a misdemeanor no big deal.

    James’s Answer

    It is possible to unwind a guilty plea, but the motion is complex. You should contact an attorney to weigh the cost/benefit of doing so. Your son may also be able to apply for a restricted license that will allow him to travel for work or school.

    my case was dismissed after nine months i want to sue the federal goverment

    James’s Answer

    Again, this will involve long protracted litigation. There are better ways to show your displeasure. Get out and vote, volunteer, or try to change the system through public participation.

    my case was dismissed after nine months i was willing to take my case to trial and they dismissed my case

    James’s Answer

    This is an uphill battle. Both of the attorneys listed may be able to help, but often times it's better to move on and focus on the road ahead, instead of those who have wronged you in the past.

  • Is there any way for me to stop a collection agency from contacting my spouse?

    I am married but don't like the collection agency getting into details of the account, not because there's anything shady on it, but because it just starts arguments. Is that just the way it is? I'm trying to work out a settlement/plan.

    James’s Answer

    You need to send them a letter to stop contacting you, and under the FDCPA they have to stop. Unless the debt is commercial, in which case they can keep contacting you regardless.
