Police routinely do that to pass the message along. You really need to hire a good competent criminal lawyer to advise you at this point to help you deal with the detective.

Please be advised that answering your questions does not establish an attorney-client relationship with myself or my firm. We would be more than happy to set up a free consultation if you call us at 407-588-6714 and specifically mention AVVO or email me at and put AVVO in the subject line.

Yes, they can. You should consult a local defense attorney immediately. They can advise you of your rights.
