On that piece of paper was me saying bad things about this certain person.police questioned me then they left.what should I do?
I'm glad that you didn't mention any specifics about what the piece of paper said here, on such a public forum. If the police were concerned enough to investigate this, you should consider contacting a local criminal defense attorney to discuss possible strategies to defend yourself against possible charges that might be filed against you. In most instances, saying bad things about people is protected by the 1st amendment; it's threats of physical violence with the present intention to carry them out that will get you in trouble.
The answer given here is for educational purposes only so those who need a lawyer can have a more successful initial meeting with a lawyer of their choice. The statements are not legal advice and the intention of this writing is that no attorney-client relationship is formed by those reading these answers. Also be sure to get a second opinion to the answers given here if you choose to do so.
Bad things? What does that mean? I do not have enough information to form an opinion here. If you are concerned that you are going to be charged with a crime, go see a criminal defense attorney in your area.
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.
You should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. If you were my client, I would ask that you refrain from any further discussions with the police about this matter. I would also suggest that you stay away from the individual referenced on the paper (assuming that you know the person or were told their identity). Good luck with resolving this issue.
Need more information to give any meaningful advice, but please don't post incriminating statements here on a public website. You should consider consulting privately with a local criminal attorney for advice.
