I received a criminal complaint for not pulling a building permit. We were hired to do a small repair job. The local building inspector saw the job being done and informed the laborers to pull a permit. I coordinated the job and subs but didn't do any of the work. Unfortunately I'm still working in an apprentice capacity so I can't pull a permit and my business partner, who holds the necessary licenses didn't finalize the permit before the criminal complaint was issued.
Can I be held personally responsible for this even though the work was contracted through the company?
