My question involves criminal law for the state of: Indiana
I don't even know what exactly what happened behind the scenes (as far as the police are concerned), but after going into my old home (my parents house) while they were on vacation and taking a couple of my guitars, I got arrested. After a while, of them talking on the radio and all that fun stuff, they let me go.
I know what I did was wrong, and I understand why I got unlawful entry and all that stuff, no arguement there.
But basically after calling the detective and going in to speak with him and my dad, I made a word of mouth aggreement to attend church with him on sundays and pay him back for the guitars I sold; for him to ask for the charges to be dropped. I never had a court date or anything
So, now, just about two years later, he is claiming that if I don't quit the band that I'm in (He thinks its the devil's music =P) that he will press the charges and I'll go to jail or something. He doesn't like my girlfriend either and has threatened that if we move in together that he'd press charges as well.
I don't know if this is going to get worse, or continue.
He owned the guitars (as in, he had the receipts from when he bought them for me) and so I never had any proof that they were mine. My dad bought the guitars on my 14th birthday for about 6000 dollars. So I was facing some pretty hefty charges (as far as I know)
But like I said, all I know is what the detective told me, I never talked to a lawyer or anything.
So, Am I in danger?
I'm keeping to our current agreement, even though its not in writing or anything.
