    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Can the police lie? Depends. Some jurisdictions release information about warrants while other don't. I imagine if your lawyer called the police they would either tell him you had a warrant, did not have a warrant or told the attorney they couldn't tell him. For example in Stanislaus County they won't tell me whether a person has a warrant but will tell a bail bonds company. So I have the bail company check.

    Speak to your lawyer immediately. That is why you hired them.
