What can I do if I got a Uhaul trailer and did not have a way to return it

If your name was entered on the rental agreement, then you are responsible for returning the trailer to U-Haul. Under the Code of Alabama, failure to return the property obtained pursuant to an agreement is termed "to deprive" the lawful owner of property and is therefore deemed "theft." See, Code of Alabama, 1975, section 13A-8-1 (2).
The people at Uhaul are going to do what Uhaul company policy tells them to do. I don't have a rental agreement to look at, but, I expect there are terms on the agreement detailing how and when you return rental equipment, and consequences for failure to comply. Telling them where you left it probably isn't on there as a return option. Why it happened isn't their problem either. They rented a trailer, and it didn't come back. That's what Uhaul sees.
The easiest, and cheapest, way to fix this problem sounds like it is to figure out how to return the trailer to Uhaul immediately. You don't need a lawyer for that. You're going to end up paying a lot more money down the road if you don't fix this now.
If you return it, and you still have felony charges pending, then you need to speak with a local criminal defense lawyer. You don't need to look for a truck accident lawyer. You need a criminal defense lawyer.
