more info needed.

however, your easiest solution is to sue in small claims court.

before filing send a self serving letter setting forth ALL the facts including your previous demands for money and send a copy to yourself. Then attach that letter to the small claims suit.

Q: What would the repercussions be for a person to ram their vehicle into a person with a weapon? Details in more info.

Given the situation where you, a normal citizen, sees a person pointing at a cop that is taking covered. The person with the gun does not see you in a vehicle. Are there any repercussions if you were to ram your car into the person with a gun to stop him? Can it be considered self defense?

Dale S. Gribow
Dale S. Gribow answered on Mar 9, 2020

more info needed.

it wouldn't be self-defense since the gun is not pointed at you.....but it would arguably be Defense of Others.

because you did the right thing doesn't mean you won't be prosecuted or sued civilly.......but my guess is that you would win

You need to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney now to try to prevent charges from being filed against you. They must have video that they showed the police before you were arrested.

William John Light
William John Light answered on Dec 24, 2019

Yes, it's illegal in the United States. In California, it's considered statutory rape. If you traveled outside of California for the purpose of engaging in sexual relations that would be illegal in California, that is also illegal.
