How can I protect myself from false Elder Abuse Charges from persons unknown?

Mom rolled out of bed Tuesday of last week. I assessed her condition before picking her up. I didn't think anything was broken and got her back up on the bed. I re-evaluated her condition and she stated both hips hurt. She got up to go into the bathroom on her own and was walking as normal. But, to be safe, I took her to the hospital in my car. During the care at the hospital, the nurse found mom had a rash on her groin area and the Nurse took pictures of it. I later saw the Police out in the hallway and they kept looking in at me. Mom had not broken anything and then doctor gave me a powder for her rash. Yesterday I received a visit from Adult Protective Services and discovered there was a charge of Elder Abuse made.

Hire a criminal defense attorney, most likely. These sound like false charges but you have to address them.

DO NOT TALK TO INVESTIGATORS. Get a lawyer.
