A: Please be careful. Unless you are attempting to press charges on you Ex for assaulting you or abusing you, I would not talk to the police without a lawyer.

To answer you specific question: There is a way for an expert to determine if a voice on a recording is yours. The science has been around for years and is accepted in court. If you did anything wrong at all, or played any joke.

DO NOT ADMIT ANYTHING!

Also, Do not lie to the police. You should exercise your right to remain silent, if you have any concerns or have committed any crime.

BE SMART! BE CAREFUL! Do Not talk to the Police without an attorney present.

A: If you want to pursue charges meeting the detective is a great idea, If you do not want to arrest your husband I do not see any reason to speak to the detective .
