If there is the possibility of you being charged with any crime, you should not speak the police unless you have an attorney present.

ok well i am in another state for school. So how would i go about talking to them with a laywer? They asked my to call them, should i call them or no?
Expert:  David Weilbacher, Esq. replied 7 years ago.
No. If they are investigating you, they can make arrangements to come to you, or they can wait until you are back in town. However, you are under no obligation to help them. Further, any statements you make on the phone can be used against you just as if the state where made in person. If you are being investigated, you need to be represent by an attorney during all stages of the investigation.
