Q: I sold a trailer but because of a EMERGENCY I had to leave state before I could give him his trailer.
Now I have to stay longer than expected. If we made an agreement on payments to pay him back, could he have me arrested of I fail to make payments on time?
A: Sounds very problematic and you need to either give the money back or get him his trailer immediately...depending on the value of the trailer you could be charged with either a felony or misdemeanor (probably a felony).
Bruce Alexander Minnick agrees with this answer
A: I am very sure you know the answer to this question; and I certainly hope you did not steal the trailer you sold because there might be a felony warrant out waiting for you to come back to Florida as I write this response. (Note: If you read my clear warning as an excuse not to return to Florida, you should keep going until you find a corrupt country that has no extradition treaty with the United States.
