My friend and I got into a wreck the other night. He was driving I was passenger. We had been drinking and we both left the accident after the wreck so he would not get a dui. I was charged with seat belt violation and open container. The only reason they knew I was in the vehicle was because the found my wallet in it. Couldn’t I say I left my wallet in his truck a week ago and that I was not in the vehicle during the accident? They have no proof I was there.
please write back.
Thanks for your time

You just posted plans to commit perjury, a crime, along with your name and zipo code, on the internet, where prosecutors can see it and use it at trial.
You needed a lawyer before. You really need one now.
