Talk to a Lawyer Immediately.
If you are accused of committing a crime, it is almost never smart to talk to the police. The police are skilled at obtaining confessions from people accused of crimes, and even if you are innocent, the police will attempt to interpret your story in a way that makes you look guilty. Instead of talking to the police, you should make an appointment to consult with a criminal defense attorney to explore your options.
