How can someone get an arrest warrant against another person, having them arrested, without any proof of wrong doing?Asked by Anonymous 2007-10-02 12:45:45 ago.
My husband and I own a small homebased business doing home improvements. A lady hired us to do some work for her, and gave us a small deposit. She postponed the work twice, then went and took out an arrest warrant for my husband. The business is in my name and the check was made out to me. With no proof of wrong doing, she had my husband arrested for "taking money with intent to defraud". We had completed 56 hours of work when this happened. We priced the total job for $2000.00. She gave us $675.00 down. After deducting the 56 hours from the total cost, we feel like we've done well over $675.00 worth. She was offered a contract from us, but she didn't want one. How can you get away with embarrassing someone by having them arrested, when you don't have any ground to stand on? She should have had me arrested if she wanted to do this. Everythings in my name. All my husband does is acting as a lead man. The magistrate released my husband without any bond, and we were even advised to fight this when we went to court. I would just like to know how this can happen, and how this is legal. Maybe I should have her arrested, so she can see how this feels. Please help me!
