If you're posting this question on Avvo I'll assume that you're either released on your own recognizance (ROR'd) or that you posted bail. Either way, if you're not in custody your only real next step is to be in contact with your attorney and show up for your court dates. If you were remanded or held on bail you would be entitled to a preliminary hearing. Since that is not the case here, the only time you will/should make any sort of statement to anyone (other than your attorney) about what happened will be at time of plea or during trial should you decide to testify.

A person charged w/a crime is not required to make a statement to the police. Most Attorney's would advise a client not to give a statement to the police before or after you are charged. If you do not already have your own Attorney, you should consider hiring a local attorney if you can. That attorney can advise you of the next step in your case. Good Luck!

At this point, you should not speak with anyone about this case except your attorney. You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately for proper representation.
