Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. How did you learn that there is a warrant for your arrest? What makes you think that the federal government is involved? How much counterfeit money did you access and spend?

If the police are looking for you, you need to get yourself a criminal lawyer first thing on Tuesday morning after the holiday. The lawyer can contact the police and broker a voluntary surrender with the police so that you don't have to spend any more time in jail awaiting a judge and a bail determination than is absolutely necessary. In that way they wont' try to pick you up at home or embarass you by showiing up at the workplace.

The lawyer can also let the police know that you are represented by counsel so that they wiill not interrogate you and try to get admissions or a confession from you.

This would be a felony charge because of the amount involved. Typically, the federal government wouldn't be interested in a case where the money involved was only $10,000. An exception would be if this is part of a much larger organized criminal racket of some type.

Meanwhile, until you get local counsel, keep in mind that anything you say to anyone other than your lawyer can potentially be used against you in court. So no matter how much you may want to talk about this to help get your head straight, it's not a good idea. Your right to remain silent rather than incriminate yourself is one of the most important rights you have when you're the suspect or the defendant in a criminal case. Don't let the police or anyone else question you about this. Save it for your lawyer.

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.
