As a co-signer, the creditor will expect you to pay if your friend does not, and you are legally obligated to pay.
The foregoing is general information only, and this communication does not create an attorney-client relationship. Always conduct a detailed, in-depth, in-person consultation with an attorney before deciding on a legal course of action, since meaningful legal advice has to take into account considerable factors that have not been disclosed or discussed.
Just to clarify the prior responses. You are liable for paying the debt you signed for. You are not liable for anything else. So, the fact that your friend is now in jail is irrelevant. You aren't liable for his criminal actions, and why he is or is not making payments on the particular loan for which you co-signed is not relevant. You are as liable as he is for the loan that you co-signed on. You are not liable for the rest of his life.
