I am very sorry for your situation. Should I recontact them and confess..the case if being turned over to the DA I am 68 years old on SS and no prior record of any type of crimesThis is not recommended
. Whatever you state may be used against you. At this point, it is best to retain counsel. May I recommend the CA Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.
At this point, one does not have to talk to the police. By admitting guilt, it only makes the prosecutor's case easier to prosecute. If one denies the matter, the case may never be brought to the Court to begin with, or, if it is, then the prosecutor is more likely to offer a plea deal due to one's lack of criminal background.
It is not recommended to contact the authorities and instead, a defense attorney should be contacted. Many will work on a payment plan.
