Hi Cherise, first I wouldn't recommend using your full name in a post in which you discuss anything having to do with an open criminal case or investigation. The only person to discuss your case with should be your lawyer. If you cannot afford a lawyer, you may be eligible for criminal legal aid services if you are an "economically disadvantaged person charged with serious and/or complex criminal offences and facing the likelihood of incarceration."
I'm not sure where you are located or I would give you better contact information, but there is a list of Legal Aid contacts by province here: https://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fund-fina/gov-gouv/aid-aide.html
Cherise: It would helpful if you say what province you are in. For now, the courts are not conducting business as usual. It is probable that if you are arrested or turn yourself in, you will be released on conditions. You should call a local lawyer who will at least give you advice over the telephone for free. You may very well qualify for legal aid too.
