A family member called the cops and reported a d.v. on us and sent s picture of the mark on my face. A small red mark. Sent a picture to the officer. The cop called me and badgered me to tell him what happened. Finally I did. I also told the cop I was in the wrong and I started the argument. I told him i started the argument and that I didn't want to press charges I wanted left alone. He showed up at my house and tried to get us to write statements. Husband said to talk to his attorney and I told him I'd have to do it later. He kept persisting and told me "you told me what happened on the phone" so you lied? And nothing happened I finally said yes. He told me he would arrest me for lying. I told him ok, I needed to go in and put my kids in bed. He left.
This post is too specific, and Gentry too small. You should ask Avvo to remove it as it could be used against you.
But since we're here I might as well try to help. Your question leaves a lot of things unanswered. You are concerned with filing a false report, but you didn't actually try to report anything; from the sound of it the police contacted you. And was this an on-duty officer or a friend who received the call from another friend?
Regardless, either you or the other party could be arrested and everything left for Judge Conner to sort out. Having said that, if either of you are charged you need to consult an attorney familiar with that court. He or she will be in the best position to help.
Good luck; this is a strange situation.
It is possible to be arrested. However, it is likely that it could be sorted out in court if you were arrested.
Hire your own lawyer this minute. You are being threatened with arround in order to try to force you to talk to the police. Your interest might not be entirely the same as your husbands. Therefore, you should have your own attorney. Since the chances of you actually being charged are not that high unless you do start lying to get your husband out of his charges, I would think most lawyer wouldn't charge you very much just to act as a sheild and a sounding board in this case.
