My question involves criminal law for the state of: Pennsylvania
My Son an adult who has an addiction problem, wrote and cashed checks from his former "common law wife) bank account.
They are no longer together. Currently he is in local jail for some related charges to drug use.
His girlfriend contacted me about this. She has 4900 dollars of checks he wrote in his name, and cashed from her account.
What is the time frame for her to press charges?
Currently I am sending her $50 per month toward the debt. She seems to be happy at this point. He has no assets to sell, and she know this.
So this is her only chance at getting repaid.
Is this a good idea? Just looking for some advice. We can not afford to hire an Attorney at this time.
