What is the name of your state? New Jersey
If someone could please read this story and give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated. I would like to know if I could be charged and convicted with the following situation.
On a saturday night I picked up two friends. One of them said that he needed to get some money from his cousin's house who lives about 15 minutes away. At the time my friend's cousin was on vaction so no one was at his house. So we were pretty bored so I agreed to drive them down to my friend's cousin's house. We got there and went in through the basement door. Also, to the best of my knowledge, we were allowed there. In fact, my friend said that he even asked his cousin. So we went in and hung out for a few minutes. At this time I decided to just leave and hang out with someone else. So I leave this one kid and my friend at my friend's cousin's house. From here on I am no longer involved, but this is where is gets bad. A couple days later the one kid somehow got back there and invited a bunch of people to the house. The house was TRASHED. Cars, jewlry, everything was stolen and destroyed. Now eventually the family came and obviously called the police. I guess somehow they found out it was the one kid that I originally brought there that did all this. So about a week later i get a call from the cops asking my story and i tell them exactly what happened and all i know. Then, my mom talked to the parents of my one friend and apparently his cousins are pressing charges on everyone(possibly me too). I believe they're even pressing charges on their own nephew.
My question is, how much trouble could I get in for this? I am 17 years old, an honors student, and have never been in trouble before. Keep in mind that i had no idea that I was doing anything wrong while i was there. Thanks in advance for any help.What is the name of your state?
