You can get into all sorts of trouble for destroying evidence, which seems to be what she's asking you to do. It would be one thing if you did it innocently, but you obviously realize that your friend is asking you to thwart her prosecution. To do it knowingly would be a serious crime.

I recommend you DO NOT do any of what she is asking of you. You could arrested and charged with tampering of evidence. If you care about your future, stay away from this girl. I wish you well..........David
