The lawyer I spoke with to day called the state police officer and the officer would not tell him anything other than he felt that my speaking with a lawyer meant tha I had something to hide. Additionally, the lawyer called the judge in our town and explalined the situation. As of the close of business today, the police had not applied for a warrant and the judge told the attorney that she would call him first without issuing a warrant.
I don't understand why, given that my other employee spole with the police and told them that all was o.k. why the police is putting such pressure on me. My veterinarians are willing to give affidavits to the lawyer in support of the condition of my animals.
How worried should I be? As I stated before, if anyone is saying that the animals inside my house are not well cared for then they broke in the house. How credible/serious do you think this situation is?
