My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan
My friend is involved with two felony cases right now both for Malicious Destruction of Property.
I should mention that he is fifteen and will definitely be tried as a juvenile, I am seventeen. He also has a Criminal History limited to one Minor In Possession. The felonies were both for tearing up his mother's rented house, with two other people. (ex. cutting the younger sister's water bed open, backing up the sink causing it to flood, various damages to personal property, damage to the rented house.)
The referee denied him bond on the 1st (his hearing) because he thought the knives in the wall were disturbing.
(I should note that I have an extended history with the Mother and a talking relationship with the Father, they never stayed together. Seeing her son in shackles made her so regret calling the police on him, so she came to me for help.) The Court knew nothing about others being involved.
If I testify at his trial and take the responsibility for parts of the offense, with out the renters consent can they charge me, what are the chances that it would help out the situation?
