Hello there,

There is an old saying that "No good deed shall go unpunished."

That sounds like the situation you have placed yourself in.

You need an attorney to be present before you make any further statements that could incriminate you.

These officers are not your friends an they are most-likely building a case against you too.

If you would like to discuss this further feel free to contact me.
