I JUST FOUND OUT HE WAS JAILED FOR HAVING FALSE DOCUMENTS AND BEING A FAKE ORAL SURGEON. DO I HAVE A CASE AND HOW TO I GO ABOUT THIS SINCE ITS IN MEXICO
A: You could join in the criminal complaint against him and under the new victims rights law he would need to pay you as part of his sentencing. The down side is that you would need to pay your legal fees and your recovery would be the amounts for services in Mexico so unless it is a large amount it may not be worth pursuing.
