Hello. The answer to this question will be state specific, and keenly fact specific. If you have the concern that you or a loved one may be charged, or, if you or a loved one are facing charges, you would benefit from legal counsel. Please contact a private attorney for help, an attorney licensed in the state involved in the issues. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.
