Hello, I have a question

Lawyer's Assistant: Have any charges been filed? If so, when is the next court date?

No charges have been filed. I just got a voicemail from the police saying there is charges pressed on my name and asked me to contact them. all I did before was text a hooker but I never met her. I did it just for playing. I'm not sure if it's for that. should I call the cops and explain?

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

Maryland

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I also go to school in west virginia. I also texted a hooker in west virginia also but never met her. that was also for just playing to see how far it goes

Good afternoon. You have no legal obligation to call anyone back and you need to be careful and verify, that this is the police and not the person trying to scam you. You can call back and ask what this is in regard to and if they ask for money, you 100% know it is a scam. You do not have to admit to anything and the mere texting alone would not be enough, so it all depends on what was said and why this person would go to the police ( which is odd), if they are involved in criminal acts as well.

I'm thinking the police may be tracked my phone call and text to the hooker which I have never saw. I did it for playing just over the phone. the voice mail says, "you'll be taking under custody by the local cops, there are 4 serious allegations pressed under you name, we would request you to get back to us so we can discuss about this case before taking any legal actions against you."
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 4 months ago

I would call them back and see what they say without admitting to anything. Let them do all the talking. I think it is odd if the police were tracking your phone, so this may be a scam. When you call them, if they ask for money or to pay a fine over the phone, it is 100% a scam. You can also ask the department that they are with and their name and hang up and call the department back from the number you find online and ask to speak with this person, in case they are impersonating someone.
