No, she is at home in Romania. Rather than addressing the situation, she is saying she will never come back. I said I would look into things for her. I know what she has done is wrong, but equally, her mother has died, and isn't thinking straight right now. I'm not sure of the degrees of compassion that would be shown by the courts given the circumstances.
She was convicted of money laundering last year and sentanced to 12 months. She did 6 months in prison, then 6 months probation, due to finsish in two months time.
So, your recommendation is that she makes contact with her probation officer, explains the situation. Likely is that the probation period would be extended and a possibility of returning to jail. But often for a woman, jail is not considered.
And the warrant for arrest, that will apply throught the world surely, so if she fails to deal with this now, she could be arrested in any country?
