He will finish his federal sentence. Then he will be sent via detainer to Texas, where he will sit in jail pending trial.

Q: Would my family member be arrested and charged?

One of my family members has admitted to me, twice, that he has murdered people while he was in some type of gang. I will not get into details because they are graphic, but he told me not to tell about it. BTW, he has not been arrested for these crimes, but he has for drugs.

Perhaps, if law enforcement believes there is Probable Cause to believe he committed the offense. There are no limitations periods for Murder and Manslaughter so his prosecution would not be barred by the passage of time.

I am assuming they did not just sell the title but the car also. If the person was not otherwise entitled as an owner to the car they had no right to sell it. The level of the theft charge (or conversion) would depend on the value of the car and how the theft occurred. Other factors that determine... Read more »

No arrest would issue because it would be a civil suit to collect on the bond. Also if you ahev already pled to the case the reason for the bond has dissipated.
