A: The best way to minimize the chances that you will get into trouble is to hire a local criminal defense attorney to manage and handle your communications with law enforcement.
Michael Hamilton Rodgers agrees with this answer
A: Dealing with the detective without a lawyer is dangerous. For a small fee, most criminal lawyers will contact the detective and make a deal to keep you out of trouble. All that is usually required is for you to be in the lawyer's office when he or she call the detective. If a deal can be made, it can be done in a very few minutes. The lawyer can make a pre;iminary call setting up the actual call where the detective, your lawyer and you are all available to discuss the matter on the phone. Sometimes all 3 of you might meet in person at the police department or your lawyer's office.
Either way, by phone or in person, you are protected, what is required of you is spelled out completely, and your "immunity" from arrest and prosecution can be assured.
