You should immediately contact a qualified criminal defense attorney, and, until you have retained the attorney of your choosing, NOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, of law enforcement. As a Former Deputy District Attorney and a Certified Criminal Law Specialist, that has doing criminal defense for about 20 years, we have successfully stopped criminal charges from being filed in many cases. The cases where we have been most successful is where our client says nothing to anyone, other than my office. If you want to speak to me by phone, for a FREE CONSULTATION, contact me at 661-267-1313........I wish you well................David Wallin

A Ramey warrant is when the police get a warrant from a judge before charges are filed. It cn be so they can ge a statement from you, prints from you or try and link you to the case somehow. If you are picked up on the warrant or contacted in any way by law enforcement, keep your mouth shut and ask for a lawyer. Don't say ANYTHING.

You need a good criminal defense attorney. I'd strongly suggest you find someone who focuses on criminal law and who routinely practices in the court where this case will be heard.

a consensus ... best to get a lawyer immediately ... don't speak to law enforcement, at least not without your attorney present. Good luck!
