Why would you go into the den of the lion?
Before you talk to anyone, let anyone in your house. Take your DNA or fingerprints or anything. RETAIN a lawyer.
If you are accurately relaying what the detective has stated or the neighbor is repeating accurately, then you are being suspected of something which can send you to prison.
According to what you wrote the detective is not your friend but your enemy. You have the constitutional right to remain silent
You have the right to remain silent, use it!!! Post a No Trespassing sign on your lawn and/or front door. Do not let cops into your house if they do not have a search warrant. Hiring a lawyer to deal with belligerent cops is a wise investment, even if you are of modest means. Good luck!
I am not your lawyer! Answering your question does not establish an client/attorney relationship between us. My answer is based on the information you have provided. It is possible that my answer would be different if I knew ALL the facts and evidence concerning your case. Further, plea offers made by the State and sentencing by a judge can vary greatly from county to county, but are legal if the offer is in accordance with the laws of Florida.
