    In trouble with the law

    Not because of anything I've done you see, I've been framed! In Markarth I uncovered corruption that goes all the way to the top. When the guards came for me I just ran like hell and decided I wouldn't be going back to Markarth. But just now I ran into a guard by Soljund's Sinkhole(quite some distance away from Markarth) who tried to arrest me. I killed him and now I've got an additional 1000 gold bounty on my head. Goddammit.

    Is there any way to clear my name or get out of this? I have the "bribe guards" perk but it doesn't seem to work in this instance. Will I simply have to do hard time?

    The only way I know of to get rid of bounties you can't seem to be able to pay off is to use the console command, 'paycrimegold <0-1> <0-1> '. It's listed in the Targeted Commands section here: http://newcontent1.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Console .

    Thanks for the tip, but that's a solution I won't and can't use. Can't because I'm playing on XBox and won't because it'd feel like cheating. Hell, I didn't even reload the game after killing that guard and increasing my bounty. I'm a firm believer in sticking with all the stupid decisions I make.

    Isn't going to prison in Markarth part of that quest?

    You are actually suposed to be arrested... I also fled the 1st time I played that quest and it led to a bug afterwards in wich I could never clear my bounty on Markarth...

    Playing a mage/thief, I ducked immediately after seeing the guard come looking for a fight, then I backstabbed him in the face and the other two became friendly. Quest broken.

    As for bounty, I reckon progressing the Thieves Guild line allows you to erase it? I think it works in other holds too, not only the Rift; I seem to remember bribing a guard in Whiterun after having killed Nazeem the jerk. Of course no perks involved.

    Indeed it should, but since in the quest you are suposed to get arrested, the guards would reply "You cant buy your way out this time"
