My question involves criminal law for the state of: TN
My husband ( soon to be EX husband) has written checks all over town with out my knowledge or consent. These were written on our joint checking account. Now a collection agency has tracked me me down for one of theses checks and informed me that they can press criminal charges against me because it is a joint checking account and in Tn there is a thing called community property law which means his debt is my debt. I called the Da's offic and they said that since he wrote and signed the check, criminal charges would be brought against him, not me. They did say I may could get sued. Am I responsible for his crime? I can see: the debt but I didn't write this check or sign it.
