Have you called the police department general number (not necessarily the one on the card) to confirm he is actually a detective?

He work night shift

He told my husband to go to station he didnt want my neighbor now that something going on
Criminal Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Thank you for the additional information.

Before going in, call and find out what it is about. If he will not tell you then refuse to go in. If you are the target of an investigation then definitely do not go in or speak to him. You are not obligated to make any statements or answer any questions.

If they had probable cause to arrest you , they would have. You do not want to answer any questions and give the the evidence they need.

Absolutely.

Criminal Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

You can refuse to meet with him and refuse to answer any questions.

If he has probable cause, he can arrest you, but otherwise, he can not force you to meet with him or answer questions.

Legally im not going to have no problem even thu he told my husband that i have to go before the come to my house . My husband said that they have paper with him
Criminal Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

You can call and ask if they have a warrant. If they do, retain local counsel and arrange to turn yourself in, rather than be arrested. Otherwise, without a warrant, you have no legal obligation to meet with him.

Where i can call to see if i have one
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
A warrant
Criminal Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Call and ask the detective if he has a warrant and what it is about, without offering any information.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
But there is other way to find otherwise than call the detective.
Criminal Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Correct (other than retaining and attorney and having the attorney call the detective for you).

If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys). Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:

http://www.martindale.com/Find-Lawyers-and-Law-Firms.aspx

It is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are all peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.

If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.

Thank you!
