If you do not have a criminal law attorney, get one NOW. If you cannot afford a criminal attorney, then one will be appointed if you qualify for a public defender.
Stop talking and posting on the internet. You are going to incriminate yourself. It does not take a very astute district attorney or law enforcement to find this post and use their imagination to twist it into an admission. You have posted way too many details about this.
No lawyer on an internet site is going to tell you that you are going to win here. People lie in court all the time and prosecutors have a 90% or better conviction rate. So what does that signal to you? The odds are not in your favor.
So talk it over with your attorney but not in public.
Ms. Hunter gave some good advice. Find a lawyer you are comfortable with, and let the lawyer do their job.
