As I emailed you, you need to hire a criminal defense lawyer immediately.

Fully Agreed with Ms. Koslyn. The issue is not necessarily about your right to use the content personally, though that may indeed be in question depending on where you got the files. The issue is regarding the right to sell the content or use the content in certain ways.

Consult a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
