If I was not in my right mind when I wrote a statement can I…
Will I get in trouble for making a false statement to the police?
Well back in December I called the cops on my fiancee and made a police report but it was not exactly true and now hes in trouble being charged with a crime that he did not do? I am scared to tell the cops and the prosecutor in the case cause I am scared I will go to jail and I have never been arrested and I have never been in jail, the only thing on my record is a ticket for not wearing my seat belt, will I get in trouble?
