Recently, a kid I know's how was robbed by 3 people I know. I was personally not involved in what happened although I was aware it was going to happen. I didn't like the kid anyway so I didn't say anything, and he wanted me to pick up his new car that day a few hours away. I of course told everyone what I was doing that day, so they took advantage of the window to rob him. Of course he thinks I took him for that reason and not to get the car.
Anyway, the kid made a private deal with the 3 people and they returned his stuff because they were identified at the scene and they figured it would just be better on them. They didn't have room in the car so I helped return the stuff to him, otherwise I never touched the stuff. I don't believe he even filed charges and he called off the investigation unit that was coming in.
Now, about 2 weeks or so after all this happened we don't talk to him anymore and he's pissed off because he considers himself our "friend" even though we don't like him, he's bi-polar and has been put in mental hospitals 3 or more times. He's also very controlling and always has to have his way, he has harrassed me and threatened me and my friends and I have emails to prove that. He used to be cool and spent a lot of money on us but after a while he started to feel we "owed" him for what he was giving us and became a complete asshole. He is pretty much a freakin' looney out of touch with people and reality, but he's pretty smart and has family who practice law.
Not only all that the whole town pretty much knows he's a whacko and have seen how crazy he acts, screaming in public and whatnot. He's threatened to harm me and others and to kill his own mother.
After he came to my house the other night we called the cops because he was outside screaming in the middle of the night with an asp (spelling? anyway a long metal weapon). The cops were called but never came because they called back and he had left. He now wants to do another private deal with us this thursday for $400, and for us to return a $1500 dollar ring he gave to me as a gift, a digital camera given to me, and various things he's given to my friends as well.
Basically what I need to know is can I get in any trouble for this? Are my friends who committed the crime still at risk, after the time he hasn't filed and private deal he made, etc. He threatens me with charges that I'm an accomplice and that I knew, and one of the kids told him I helped them by telling them he wouldn't be there that day and what he owns.
Here's a direct quote from him on aol instant messenger that he sent me. Just so you can see what I'm dealing with here.
"jsyk,it would be very unwise for you to try anythig at this point.Ive called in some favors from some freinds of mine from the insitution.It wouldent be wise,Im hoping eric gave you the details and said waht i did."
btw I"ve also never been in trouble with the law and I'm 17. The ages of the 3 others are 15, 20, and 14.
