Q: Stopped after leaving University. Had an appointment. Charged with Concealing Identity and Resisting and Obstruction

I walked out of the University. A police car was outside. Drove by. Then later another pulls up. Says stop. I stop. Asks me what I am doing. Going to meet someone. I had an appointment. Asks for ID. I told him I had an appointment. I need to get going. Police drive car into me. Then throw me on the hood. Arrest me. Then Search me. They find my Debit Card. Had 500 pages on me. Separate it between officers start reading it. Said It was a fake name. I did not have a name in the computer. Said I lied about the name.

Then charged me with a bomb hoax. What can I do?

A: You are being prosecuted for making a bomb threat or for concealing identity, resisting arrest and obstruction?

Because you were able to write this, I assume you have been released on bail. Have you retained an attorney (or has one been appointed to represent you)? I see, in what you wrote, some possible defenses to the latter charges, but you have not indicated what the bomb threat charge is based on.

If you don't already have an attorney, you need one, immediately. And, in the mean time, do not tell the authorities anything.
