Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
My police friends said that they think the detective was trying to get a confession from me over the phone when he called me. When the detective called he asked me what happened with the wallet situation and how much money was in the wallet. I told him I didn't remember because I never saw the wallet and i didn't remember how much my job told me was in the wallet
However I know the amount is under $70
I know the amount now because the detective said before the called ended " I believe the amount was for $60" in which I said ok. I lied to my employers when they were asking me how many times I entered the room, because I entered the room a lot because it was part of my job I tried to give a description as to each time i entered the room. I started to feel as if I was starting to become incriminated because the questions seemed leading. So I Stated one of my friends called me to check if there was a lost phone which wasn't true. I was scared they were about to accuse me. They did an investigation and they found out it wasn't true. At that time I quit the job. According to the detective they were not going to press charges because I stated I was going to pay for being negligent. But since I quit it counted as being non cooperative. I told the detective I still wanted to pay because I do feel responsible however I did not steal the wallet
I truly apologize my little brother used my computer without permission. It won't happen again
The only thing i would like to know is that by me agreeing to pay the fee for negligence, have I technically admitted guilt? And exactly what charges are they trying to put against me since it was never stated that I stole the wallet? I asked the job what the charges were being placed against me and they said speak with the detective who hasn't contacted me back in over a week. There were cameras in there, and there was no proof. I'm definitely going to hire an attorney.
Thank you ma'am and I will follow your advice and just keep to myself. you have been a great help in me trying to wrap my mind around this
