Does anyone have any idea how to behave after you’ve been falsely accused of a crime by a loved one? I’m fairly confident no one here will tell me to turn the other cheek. An ex-beau is convinced I broke into his apartment and stole some of his belongings (he won’t even tell me what was taken) and I am so completely devastated and angry I have no idea how to respond to the allegations. I just cry. Is there anyone here who A.) gives a shit and B.) has any advice on how to proceed with my dignity intact? He has already tried to appeal to my “soul” which is really offensive to me.
Thanks so much. I had a feeling that was what I needed to do,but have never been involved in anything even remotely like this so thanks for the advice. I really appreciate your taking the time to answer. Be well….
Yeah, I do. I’m a certified specialist in criminal law, so my advise isn’t going to help you feel better, or smooth things over with anyone, but please take it seriously.
1. Find a good lawyer.
2. Don’t talk to the police; tell them you want your lawyer present.
3. Assuming you have already denied everything to everyone, stop talking to anyone. Just say, “It’s too painful. I won’t talk about it.”
Let us know if there is anything else we can do.
Since you’re offering a little casual advice here, constable ... if you’re so inclined, after you’ve denied everything (as appropriate) and secured the services of a lawyer, etc, can you then, if confronted, add some improvisations like “Fuck off you pathetic asshole.” or maybe “If you want my attention at least be man/woman enough to let me know ... so I can just tell you to kiss my ass, you sorry, tiny-schlong-compensating, simpering excuse for an adult, and we can dispense with all this tiresome, whiny, adolescent bullshit.”
Yes,thank you. And your knowledge of the size of his anatomy is dead on.
I can’t make any promises as to the results of that second suggestion.
I just know it works when my mom gets irritating.
Well I certainly appreciate the consideration you’ve given my situation. And just to make you a little sicker- this guy IS AN ATTORNEY HIMSELF!
