why would a detective from the criminal investigation division be looking for me what dose this mean

i don't have any more money to pay u
Criminal Lawyer: Barrister, Criminal Defense Law replied 4 months ago

Well, it means that they have some type of investigation going on where your name came up as someone who might have information about the case... If doesn't mean anything sinister...it could be about someone else entirely who was accused of a crime and said they were with you on the night in question.

.

So if you have not been involved in any illegal activity, you have nothing to be concerned about..

.

And of course, you have zero legal obligation to talk to the police at any time about anything if you don't want to. You can simply tell them that you don't want to speak to them..

.

thanks

can they lock me up
Criminal Lawyer: Barrister, Criminal Defense Law replied 4 months ago

If you got that resolved, then this likely isn't about that.. But unless you engaged in active fraud and they reported it to the police, this likely isn't about that after so long..

.

They can only lock you up if you are charged with a criminal offense that justifies taking you into custody instead of issuing a citation and a summons.. And those are normally only serious offenses like robbery, murder, drug sales and possession, felony theft, etc..

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
