    I lied and was drunk. I put someone in jail and now the person charged with domestic violence but when sheriff called and asked if I wanted to press charges I said no. The Sheriff said he will drop charge and release him however the person is still in custody what am I to do?

    • Monique – I don’t know. What is God telling you to do. He must be dealing with you for you to be on this website, and to ask the question.

      At least, can you do all that you can to get him out as soon as possible. I assume you are afraid that you will go to jail if you told the truth. It gets complicated when we do not tell the truth.

        Things worked out good charges were dropped from that person. I learned a lesson on lying but also learned telling the truth will definitely set you free and feel good inside your body….
