Can the police lie to me about the case to try to get more information?

Are they legally allowed to do this? I feel like they're playing mind games and their stories don't add up. I think they're doing this to scare me so I rat out my husband. They said they have 3 witnesses and they are going to testify.

    Absolutely. Law enforcement can look you right in the eye and make misleading statements during the course of an investigation. They do this to elicit further incriminating statements. You should seek your own experienced criminal defense attorney to advise you about your rights and exposure to being charged for crimes such as being an accomplice or obstructing an investigation. You shouldn't talk to law enforcement without your attorney by your side.
