My husband was charged with criminal damaging 2909.06 in Ohio and 2911.21 Criminal trespass. It was his vehicle but a friend was driving; my husband jumped out of the vehicle when his friend started on the property and the friend fled in my husband's vehicle; my husband went to jail when the sheriff arrived and now faces these charges. Not only did this occur, the friend trashed our vehicle, dropped it off at our house (where i found it later) and again fled! What do we do? Can we press charges against the friend for unlawful use of our vehicle and for the damages?
1 Answer from Attorneys
You could sue the friend for the damages to your property. Plus, you can also file a complaint but there may not be a lot that the police do. What I would recommend is to sue the friend in civil court. You will need an attorney to do this and I would be happy to represent you.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
