Yes -- and they will do so until they get all of their money, plus interest. You ought to try and negotiate a resolution pronto -- that can save you some dough. An attorney could try to pull that off for you for a few hundred bucks.
Best of luck.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
