Thank you for the opportunity to assist you.
It sounds like the city council person looked at the incoming number and gave it to the police. The police then probably ascertained the carrier (or wireless service provider) and got a search warrant to look through the wireless provider's records.
I hope you didn't say anything to the detective when you and he talked. These phone records might make you look suspicious, but they certainly don't prove you made a harassing phone call. All this record MIGHT prove in court
is that the cell phone number which is registered to you appears to have made a call to the council member on such and such a date and time. It does not prove WHO made the phone call, nor does it prove what was said in the call.
If the detective calls back, or asks you to provide any information, or wants to speak with you, ABSOLUTELY do not talk to him. Just tell him politely that you have nothing to say.
If you have an attorney, refer the detective to your attorney. If you do not have an attorney, I would seek out legal advice from a competent criminal
defense attorney in your area. If you do not know an attorney in your area, try the California State Bar attorney referral service
. They can point you in the right direction.
At any rate, it is imperative for your own sake that you remain silent. You would be STUNNED at the number of crimes that would remain unsolved or that could otherwise not be prosecuted without some sort of damaging or inculpatory statement from a person accused of the crime. Don't help the police or the prosecutor to convict you! Stay silent, and observe your 5th amendment rights!
