    Answered . I agree with my colleague, the short answer is Yes. The long answer is a lot more complicated and depends on the facts of what you may or may not have done in regards to criminal activity, and the scope of the 'cooperation' you are being asked to do to avoid being charged with a criminal offense. If you are cooperating with the police you should consult immediately with an experienced criminal defense lawyer licensed in KY (assuming that is where you are cooperating), BEFORE you do anything else in regards to cooperation.
