My question involves criminal law for the state of: Oregon.
About two months ago, my friend and I, both 15, prank called a bed and breakfast owner about forty miles away using my cell and *67. We called many times. We gave the number to other people at the high school, and the owner easily recieved more than 100 calls.
We ordered him a pizza. About three weeks ago, he threatened to involve the police. We didn't believe it and called about three more times over the next week, we started hearing beeps at the beginning of the calls, so we stopped completely.
Just this morning I got a call from the owner's local police station on my cell. They know my name, address, home and cell number. They know my dad's number. My mother is deaf. They know about the pizza, and the numerous phone calls. I'm the only person in my group that was called.
They asked why I did it, and if I was aware that it is illegal to do it. In a panic, I said I didn't know about it, and that it was probably my friends who borrow my phone often. He said it's still my phone, and I am responsible.
The police want me to have my father call them, who was not in at the moment. I called the police back a few hours ago, and the officer in charge of this case was off duty. I left a very calm voicemail.
I do not know whether to leave my friends out of it, or bring them in.
I don't know what to do, period...
My friends and I are going to talk about this as a group tomorrow, but time is constantly running out.
Help is most appreciated.
