My boyfriend and I were going to visit his cousin at his home. We called prior to coming and when we arrived he didn't come to the door we call him and he said he'll be there shortly to wait for him about 2 minutes into the wit police enters the building and ask us if we live there we told them no and gave them the reason as to why we were there they didn't believe us so they took us in now I have court tomorrow I went and got a notary stamped and signed to prove my innocence but I'm still very nervous.
Sounds like there could be a bit more to the story that you might even be aware of.
There are many variables:
You or boyfriends backhround.
Type of apartment you were visiting.
Unfortunately this situation happens way too often.
From everything you have written, you should hire an attorney or apply for an attorney to be assigned to you. If I were in the situation, I would not show the notarized letter to anyone at Court without having my attorney review the document. It is likely you will appear in Court tomorrow and they will read you the charges and give you an opportunity to retain or get assigned counsel.
Although it might not be tomorrow it sounds like this case should ultimately be dismissed.
