What should I do if to prove my innocence but it incriminates me in something else?
Question Details: Someone transferred me money to get them drugs which I did. Then, 3 days later, they told their bank I took it from their account without their knowledge. I have text messages between me and the person to prove I'm telling the truth but they contain talk about getting drugs.
The only way to prove that you did not steal the money is to prove you helped somone buy drugs. You need to consult with a criminal defense attorney to explore the following two issues:
1) Which charge would be worse for you--i.e. are you better off with the theft charge than the drug charge?
2) Could you offer to turn evidence against the other person in exchange for no or minimal charges or a non-prison sentence?
You need a lawyer's advice, based upon a careful consideration of your circumstances, about these issues: don't decide what to do on your own.
And, of course, you also need to consider what may happen if you do disclose the drug transaction: will this person or his associates threaten or use violence against you or your family?
