I don't know what the law is, so I would like to ask so I am doing everything as legal as I can.
Here we go:
1) A person is wanted by the FBI and is currently leaving outside of the country
2) Person is married and has kids. If i send money to the "Family" via the bank (US bank to US bank) - the bank account is owned by the spouse that is 100% legal, is that illegal?
3) If the Person asked me to get mail for them in the USA and then send it to them oversees, is that illegal?
I may want to take this to the next step via a consultation, though wanted to get the basics first. Thanks much!
You should really speak with an attorney about your specifics of what you are trying to do. You seem to be trying to avoid being charged with obstructing justice, and aiding and abetting a fugitive.
If you are giving your money to the family that is fine, but if you are giving money from the fugitive to the family through your bank and it is related to a crime you would be breaking the law. Holding stolen possessions or other items related to the crime will get you in trouble.
Before you start breaking the law even inadvertently, speak to an attorney.
There is not nearly enough information to give you an answer you can rely on. IIt sounds like there is much more to the story.
The less involvement, the less contact you have with this possible fugitive the better.
I suggest you that make an effort to convince your friend to surrender himself and avoid taking any steps that assist him to remaning a fugitive..
