what can you do if you work with the police and do what then want in exchange for your charges to be dropped and you do it, but still get charged and have to appear in court?
You should proceed very carefully in this matter and retain or be appointed a criminal defense attorney to advise you. The ultimate decision about charges brought against you belongs to the prosecuting attorney, not the police. Police do not have concerns for your personal safety and may make promises that they are not able and/or willing to uphold.
