Houston, TX asked in Civil Litigation for North Dakota

Q: I am in North Dakota and I decided to sell my 05 Honda Pilot but I had problem with the buyer and I repoed the car

I decided to help this girl and gave her a very deep slash on the price. The main reason I gave her such a price was that it would help her and it would honor my wife as i think she would approve, I had to speed up the sell and I asked her for $600 down and $400 to come and they agreed and I told them I had to order the title and when I got it I would give it to them but knowing they needed to pay it off. Two days later they started trashing me and telling me to give them the title and threatened me and my son. Finally i said since our friendship was severed our business relationship soured as well. I sent a demand letter to stop driving it, give it back to me and I would give them their money back. But they hid the car so I added $100 a day until returned and i repoed it 2 days later as they were not going to pay and they hate me for some reason and i would not have sold to them. should this be criminal on my self or is this civil court
