First, you need to 100% confirm you are not being formally charged. If you DO get charged, my kind but VERY strong advice is to not speak AT ALL with the police nor prosecutor without first consulting with a criminal defense attorney. I would not agree to ANY interviews nor make ANY statements to the police without a lawyer present, at ALL times. I wish you and your boyfriend all the best of luck. Warmest regards, Matt Catchick.
Your boyfriend can be charged and convicted of a conspiracy charge without the co conspirator ever being formally charged. This might be the case here. It is an odd way of doing it but it can be done this way.
The state has a tendency to throw the book at anyone who they have facts against. They must have probable cause, which merely amounts to a crime has been committed and we think the defendant did it. Even though you know you did not commit any crime, the state can charge you. If the state charges you, it is always best to get a seasoned criminal defense attorney on your side.
R. Jason de Groot, Esq. We do not have an attorney-client relationship. I am not your lawyer. The statements I make do not constitute legal advice. Any statements made by me are based upon the limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business. This disclaimer is in addition to any disclaimers that this website has made. I am only licensed in Florida.
I urge you to retain a criminal defense attorney in your state who can look into the situation and find out what is going on. Your friend may have misread or misunderstood what may be a preliminary charging document. You may be named but not charged. You may be charged, already or in the future. Do not approach the police or the prosecutor yourself. Have an attorney do it for you, and you stay behind the shield of your attorney's protection. And I agree with my colleague. Quit posting about this matter and quit talking about it. What you say to your lawyer is protected by the strictest confidentiality known to the law. What you say to anybody else belongs to the entire world, all the more so for what you publish on the internet. Silence and your attorney are your best and only friends.
