If one day I am called by a detective and s/he ask me to go to the police station to ask me a couple of questions regarding a criminal case, under the law, am I required to go? Should I contact an attorney or go to the public defender office (if I am unemployed or poor at the moment)? If by chance I were to be accused of a serious crime and failed to show at the police station, would a warrant be put under my name? Would police officers show at my door and would try to break into my place? If this were to ever happen (generally I do not get in trouble, but things can happen even to the most uneventful person) how should I proceed? Who should I contact?
