Could I get in trouble with the law????

A roommate of mine turned back on our power. Yes he messed with the globe. And we didn't know until we came home...we told him to turn it back off and wouldn't listen. But we didn't report him. And now our entire meter thing is gone I think we got caught and they are finger printing it. Could we...my husband and me get in trouble??

  • if your friend has been arrested before then he is in trouble probally. You will have to proove to the police (if they come knocking) that someone else did it not you. Stealing power is a serious crime.

  • Well he has been arrested before more then twice and his fingerprints should be the only ones inside of the box.

  • Jail and high fines versus paying an overdue bill. Yeah, breaking the law makes perfect sense. Wow! Have fun with that....

  • Yeah you could go to jail but more than likely they will just make you pay a fine.

  • Also, don't be surprised if you get charged a deposit fee if you restart electric under your name again...
