    Posted: 17 September 2008 at 5:35pm
Me and two friends did some stuff to the schools most hated teacher this summer. Now he is threatening to take it to court but, isn't sure what he wants to do yet. Well, actually we really did nothing. I assume the cops wrote the reports to shut him up, me and one friend went up and requested copies of the reports as teacher said he wants one, we didn't know they cost $ so screw him we got our own. for now, gotta wait for them to get them in though.

First report : Friend was driving (kid with Ex cop car) got on it in front of his house, it threw some gravel. He called the cops and blah blah blah, stupid.

Second Report: Other friend drove buy, clipped his garbage can, it fell over and he called the cops for that. He told us his neighbor was pointing a gun at us, lmao go for it.

Also, when I tried to get an estimate of the report cost she told me it depends on the length of the report, she asked what it was for and I only said we knocked a garbage can over and she was just laughing. She thought it was funny a person took the time to call the cops because their can got knocked over.

So my question, do the reports expire, like. After a certain date is he not able to use them against us ? Also, since I wasn't driving and everything was driving related, am I free to go or does that stupid, you're a passenger thing count still ?

So that does still count ? Even though everything was driver related, nobody exited the vehicle, we all still get it ? I'd tell him to go  himself but I don't want to have him come down hard on my friends who were driving.

It has been my experience that they don't expire.  That said, if your explanations of what happened are fairly accurate, I don't see that there is a lot he can take you to court for.

I would however give serious thought to finding smarter friends to hang out with.

The guys such an ass, full of empty promises, lies to my parents, and my friends parents right to their face. He should not be working his job, he thinks he is better than everyone, he just has that mentality I guess.

Also, he even said, "It's pretty bad my my 3 best students do this" Yea, your 3 best/hardest working students just did that, take a freaking hint. He's been trying to hide his home address for so long.

Also, my explanations are accurate, well, first one, friend back up in his driveway to turn around, but tires didn't spin until he was on the dirt part of the road, and, second time my friends truck tires are bald so when he turned around and backed up they squawked a little but nothing major, then he clipped the can on the way out.

What all do you think the most he could do is ?

I agree, but I'm not dumb enough to drive like that.

A report is just a report.  A piece of paper.  It doesn't "expire".  Police departments have document disposal policies, but my suspicion is that they basically keep everything forever.

But that's the wrong question.  The correct question is what the statute of limitations is.

In your case, there are two - criminal and civil.  For a civil torts claim, the statute of limitation is typically two years.  For criminal matters it varies, but certainly more than two years.

If criminal charges are to be brought, they can probably be brought for a long time.  If the guy wants to sue, he probably has a couple of years to do so.

property damage, intentional infliction of emotional distress - I'm sure he could think of something.
