My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan
My uncle wanted to trade a car for some stuff I had. riding lawn mower, drill press, pipe bender,2 guns. but I did not have both guns so he let me do it with just one gun. And told me to just get him the 2nd gun wene I got it. so I agreed. And at the time of the trade. He had just got the car put in his name. So he did not have the title back yet from the state. And at that time he said that he would give me the title as soon as he got it in the mail. Some time went by and he got a hold of me and said that he was not going to give me the title because the stuff that I traded was not worth the car. He wanted more. At that time a told him I wanted to trade back. He said no because he had money. Into the stuff I traded. He said he had to fix some of it. So I offered to pay him the money he had into the stuff. wicth was around 200.00 I just wanted to trade back. He said no. And know he says that if I do anything with the car he is going to report in stolen. Even though I have all the paper work on the car that he gave me except the title. He is going to say that I went to his house and drove of with it. But it has been sitting in my drive way for the last 5 mouths. I have wittes. My question is. Can he get me for stealing the car? I have asked him to trade back 3 different times and every time he says no. now he says he is going to reposses it. Can he do that? what legal action do I have.
