Many times I am called after a detective calls my client – regarding false, or sometimes true, allegations. My clients run the gambit of people who did not give a statement, or who were forced/tricked into giving a statement regarding what happened. Almost always it is more intelligent, safer, for you to refuse to cooperate with the police. As a former prosecutor I can assure you contacting a criminal lawyer before talking to the detective, or police, is your best choice.
As a former prosecutor I can tell you my easiest cases to win were the cases where the defendant tried to be completely honest with the police. These people are good people who thought if they were nice, or honest, with the police that they would just get a warning and be sent upon their way. Sadly when the police investigate they are looking to charge someone, probably you.
