Q. I was falsely arrested by a non-compliant condo association.  Out of state tenants and falsely accused- property damage and stalking.   What can I do prior to the trial date set for January 20, 2011?

A.  My recommendation is that the individual speak with an attorney.  As for the condo concerns, if the board acted maliciously within the scope of their duties as board members, the individual may have a cause of action against the board.  Generally, though, his criminal issues will be tried separately.
