Before I respond to your inquiry, I must state that we have not spoken, I have not reviewed the relevant documents and facts, and I do not represent you. Therefore, my discussion below is not a legal opinion, but is informational only. Finally, my discussion applies only to issues to which Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey or Federal law applies, unless otherwise specified.

That being said, the information in your question is not enough to convict anyone of a crime. However, it may get the police interested in what is going on. I'm not sure there is any use to explaining anything to the doctor; before you do, however, I would recommend you speak with a criminal defense attorney in Ohio.

If you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact me at the below address(es) or telephone number.
