Question

I let someone borrow my car and they ended up stealing it

My mom owns this vehicle but we've both been paying for the financing of it - half and half. Well, I let a girl borrow it and she ended up stealing it. Am I going to be in trouble because I let her borrow it?

You let her borrow the vehicle, not have it. I would contact the police ASAP and file a report. Present them with as much information about you allowing her to borrow the vehicle as possible. If you have comprehensive coverage on the vehicle, it sounds like you would if the vehicle is financed, you can file a theft claim with your car insurance company and get it replaced. Best of luck!
