    Answered . Hello. Are you implying that you are innocent and being falsely charged with this crime? You need to have an attorney assist you and represent you. Evidence that you did not commit the crime needs to be gathered. You should remain silent and speak about this only with your attorney; you should not post details on a public website. If someone provided false information to the police, that dimension of your legal problem should be addressed. Some attorneys, myself included, are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys, myself included, will confer for free. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys, myself included, will provide a reduced fee for need. All the best.
