It is too late to just "pay it back" in secret...

You need to contact a local criminal attorney, and see if they can negotiate a deal for you to pay it back and avoid charges... They can also help you with the police....

Talking with the police or anyone else about this is not a good idea, until you have a local criminal attorney with you! As always your own statements will be used against you.

There is still time to avoid jail and other consequences, but you can't keep ignoring the questions, and you can't just answer them either! So get a local criminal attorney, tell them everything, and let them set up a repayment and represent you with the police if they still want to charge....

You you want to avoid arrest, get that attorney now.. you can use the yellow pages or try www.legalmatch.com

they had the dective to contact me on thursday then i was supposed to turn monies over to them on monday but i didn't. so the detective contacted me on yesterday but i didn't answer the phone. i just don't want them to come and arrest me at work or at home. i don't want an arrest period.
Expert:  romlawyer replied 6 years ago.

Well you will be arrested!

That is unless your lawyer makes a no arrest agreement or negotiates a "walk in" and "walk out" scenario....

If they want to force an arrest they can, and if you had met them with the funds you would have been arrested at the exchange..
