A question I have is file criminal charges against who? If you mean agains the repossessor. As long as the person who did the repossessing was a legal repossession firm, no criminal charges can ever be filed against them. As far as the person who had the item repossessed from them, as long as there was no criminal law broken such as finance fraud, no. When something gets repossessed your car, boat, or whatever is simply taken from you and given to the financing institution. Unless you did something to the repossessor like assualting them or something. In short, no one gets arrested for getting an item repossessed from them. It just makes your credit rating stink for a few years. Yes an arrest can be made after repo is completed if a criminal act has occured.Contact the police they will be able to tell whether what occurred is covered under crimminal or civil laws if it is criminal they will take action if it is civil you will have to pursue it in court.

Criminal charges are not applicable. Financial responsibility is to the extent the lender wishes to pursue collection of the debt including but not necessarily a lawsuit. An exception in some states of a person committing a criminal offense would be if a replevin order is in effect and the vehicle is deliberately "hidden" from the repossession agent.

A judgment technically is not "filed" unless you mean the judge ordered a criminal complaint to be filed without a finding, usually done to allow a defendant to avoid a criminal conviction if there are no further violations or criminal charges for some specified period, like six months or a year. Otherwise, a court enters or issues the judgment for or against the defendant.

Can criminal charges be filed on someone who doesn't pay fully for a motorcycle?

It is possible. If it is a case of fraud, then definitely. In some states an order of replevin (an action for the recovery of goods or chattels wrongfully taken or detained) can be sought, and if the buyer is served with such, but refuses to surrender the motorcycle, he can be arrested for contempt of court. In several states, there are specific laws that make it criminal to hinder repossession efforts, and the penalty is similar to grand theft.

What is the punishment for harassment communication in Kentucky?

Your elaborations on the question have been moved to the discussion section. You have not filed charges. You have filed a civil complaint for a protective order, and may have made a report to the police. Private individuals are not permitted to file criminal charges. Only the state, through the prosecuting attorney, can do this. If you have made a report to the police, you would need to follow up with the police to find out if the case has been referred to the local prosecutor. You would also want to follow up with the criminal prosecutor to determine if/when they will file criminal charges. If the prosecutor does opt to file criminal charges, and if the defendant is convicted, the punishment would be determined by the judge.
