My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
I found a money order alomost 2 months ago for $400.00 with the reciept stub still attached. Everyone told me that money order is basically cash and since the stub was still attached then I could not get in trouble, because it's like find cash. So I cashed it and now today police came to question me, but I was not home and my fiance called me, so I called them and they told me they needed to ask me a few questions. So I went down there at first denied it then just told them I found it and cashed it. The officers told me that if I bring back the amount of money which was the $400, then they would put it into evidence and when the case is forwarded to the state legislature or whatever then they would see that I gave the money and maybe the person who is pressing charges for the stolen money order will drop the charges. I asked for a copy of the case or report and the officer told me they will not have it available for 2-3 days. They also told me that there is still the chance that the person pressing charges will not drop them and if they don't then there ill be a warrant put out for me.
I am so scared. I have never been in trouble or arressted before and I am freaking out. I went and gave them the money and I still could be arressted. I wanted to get the persons number and tell them I am so sorry and that I gave the police the money back, but I do not have the number or anything.
Does anyone know what might happen to me? What I could be charged with? Thank you.
