    Tuesday Nov 18 | via The Morning Call 

    A Lehigh County judge on Tuesday urged a South Whitehall Township family to "take precautions," saying the justice system could not adequately protect them from a man who was caught by the father videotaping an adult daughter while she showered. Judge Robert L. Steinberg called Gregory Steckroth "a danger to the community" and said he was reluctant to accept a plea bargain that allowed the victim to avoid testifying at trial, but could put Steckroth back on the street in less than two years.

Apparently my mothers license is revoked till the end of Aug. she never knew anything. No I cosogned the car and drove it off the lot back on 7/9/13. Yesterday 7/15/13 they called me and told me they are going to repo the car from us because her license is revoked. Weird because she has insurance and everything with no issues. And then they proceed to tell me that they will not refund any money we put down. Should they have checked her license before we drove the car off the lot? Especially since she is the one driving it? Do I have any legs to stand on? As the cosigner I do not want a repo on my credit over a dealership screw up.
