Q: Armed robbery, what to do now?
My BF is a convicted felon. He assaulted me and I was so upset I said he robbed my friend and my mom & friend went along with it. I went to the station and didn't press charges. My mother gave a recorded statement and my friend & I have written statements. He now has a warrant..What do I do?
A: He needs to hire an attorney as soon as possible. As I'm sure you know these are very serious charges, and may also have collateral consequences if he is on parole or probation from the felony conviction.
An experienced lawyer will have the ability to navigate all aspects of this situation with him.
