José M. spanish attorney
In my opinion doing nothing your son will take therisk to be deteined as soon as spanish police reach him even when it just made to be in front of the judge for a couple of hours
I think it could be better for you to contract a local attorney who study the case pay the penalty in his name if neccesary and forget all about it
May be with some little money he be free to stay in Spain without problms
Thats my advice, contract a local attorney who study the case and defend him and pay the fine in order to forget the case
I am sure he is now, the problem is if some day he comes....
Imagine the stupid case if deteined for an old case to be sent to the court
Oh that its not a joke really, even he could be prosected in UK or in a third country. I thought it just was a little fine ...
I recomend you to contract a local attorney in order to defend him, do not take a doubt about it
5 years is a hard penalty and the consecuencies could be very bad
Contract a local attorney who study what defend he has or even to get an agreement with the court
may be he could just pay and forget the imprisionent
But to get that he has to contract an attorney
If he does not do it he could be prosecuted even in Uk
Uk police could do anything by now
the point is in spain and in the spanish court, where you need a spanish attorney
To do nothing is to take the worst way because the moment to defend him is now
Your attorney now could reach an agrement in court, just money no jail
Its the advice I think you need
Do not wait to reed for a profesional to do nothing
I am sorry you did not like the answer
Have a good day Sir and sorry if I made you to lose your time
