A: Quit talking to the Police or anyone else about this. Talk to some competent criminal attorneys about their possible fees, and start putting that money together now. Also decide upon a possible Bonding Company to use. You may need a new phone and number. If arrested, demand a Preliminary Hearing or hire another attorney.
