No. Any thing your husband writes can be used as evidence if charges are ever brought. The last thing you should be doing is speaking with any law enforcement agency without representation when you are the subject of an investigation. I strongly urge you hire a lawyer to help you with this situation. Many times if lawyers get involved before charges are brought, they can help avoid charges all together.
You should never volunteer evidence to the police or any investigating agency. Based on what you've said it might not be the best defense in any even. You need to consult a lawyer.
Providing any sort of false documents will only exacerbate the situation, and not help with a resolution. I would recommend you hire a welfare fraud lawyer who has assistance in dealing with medicaid and food stamp fraud investigations. They will be able to navigate the process for you.
