Would they normally be arrested, or would they normally be informed of the charge and given a chance to respond through their lawyer without being taken into custody? Would they normally have to travel to the other county to be arraigned?
The charge will probably be that they violated Civil Code section 2945.4, regulating foreclosure consultants. It is punishable by a fine of not more than $10,000 and/or "imprisonment in the county jail for not more than one year, or in the state prison, or by both that fine and imprisonment for each violation." This person allegedly defrauded hundreds of people throughout the state, but in the charging county (Shasta County), there are probably only one or two victims.
