My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
Hello, I have a friend who recently discovered her son has been panhandling with the story that his brother died and he is raising money for a funeral. He has a sign with a picture printed on it with a full name and date of birth and death. Apparently he has done it several times and plans to continue doing it. She is very worried what might happen to him if he continues to do this. What criminal charges could be expected if he is caught, and what is the likelihood of him getting busted?
