title jumping

So say I sell a car to person A. Two weeks later person A feels that they can't fix up the car to where they want it. Person A sells the car to person B without ever having the car registered to their name. Person B (meth person) gets pulled over for driving without license, insurance, brain etc. Car get's towed. I the original owner get mail from the Police. Then I get mail from tow company saying I owe them money. Please Note: I erred by not flagging the DMV, doh!
My question is: Isn't it illegal for Person A to sell a car to person B without ever having registered the car to oneself? Isn't this illegal to do in all 50 states? My gut tells me it just ain't right.
thanks for yall's time,

You should have given him a bill of sale, which you both signed, and keep a copy.......

Kind of late for woulda, coulda, shoulda quotes, But my wife makes a copy of their drivers license, a copy of the bill of sale, and in Ca. we send in a release of liability form. If the car is worth it, get it back. If not, try working the system to get out from under it.

But not driving a stolen vehicle? Seems to me the police work here is highly questionable. If the police are claiming YOU own the car...then what the heck was person B doing driving the car? If he had no proof of ownership, the normal reaction is to think...ah, stolen vehicle...and perhaps this driver is the thief. Did they ask him? Did he say he had bought the car? Did he produce any documentation of ownership?

Those questions are always a part of a normal traffic stop around here..."license and registration please?" And if no registration then a complete follow up nvestigation of whether or not person B had verifiable permission from the true owner to be driving the car. And if so, then driver B becomes responsible for the fees and charges. And if not, then driver B is arrested for stealing the vehicle.

Something sounds a bit fishy in this one.

If he has signed the title, I don't think you have to register it in your name in order to sell it but I could be wrong. I do, however, think there is a time limit on how long you can wait about registering it ?????????????????????????

You should always notify the DMV of any sales to protect yourself. I think however since you have a bill of sale you are good to go. In Texas it is not a law to notify the DMV of vehicle or trailer sales.
