A: Without knowing facts of abuse claim, I would be careful in presenting any evidence to the police. Particularly, I would not offer a verbal or written statement. If you have documents that exonerate you, you may want to obtain counsel in order to negotiate with the police. I would not do it yourself.

Thank you for your communication.
