It sounds like you and your friend may be among the lucky ones. It is still possible that criminal charges will be filed but it sounds unlikely. Regardless be careful to monitor your mail closely and attend immediately to anything you receive from a court agency. With respect to the civil demand, when it comes by mail ignore it and the ones that will follow for a few months. If, as I have seen happen, attempts are made to contact you by telephone, ignore those as well. The civil demand scam and criminal charges are unrelated. Good luck. Btw, if you receive something from the courts contact legal counsel immediately.
