Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
My name is***** have been an attorney for 26 years. Can you tell me what state you are in? Also, How did you find out about this anonymous accusation?
Did the police ask to speak with you? Have you spoken with them?
I want to remind you of your Miranda Rights. You have the right to remain silent. You don't have to speak with the police. When you speak with them, they will use what you say as evidence against you.
If the police spoke with you and did not arrest you, they probably don't have enough evidence to arrest you. The anonymous person could be a potential witness.
That person who made the complaint to the hotline may come forward and may give a statement. This would be direct evidence. You may consider speaking to a lawyer to explain all of the circumstantial evidence they may have. Do you want me to give you a resource to find a lawyer in Pennsylvania?
Please let me if you have more questions or need further information. If you are satisfied with my assistance, I ask that you rate me.
