The level of proof needed to charge you with a crime is called 'Probable Cause', reason to believe a crime occurred and that you were involved. In NJ, if an alleged victim says you committed a crime, and that statement is accepted as providing at least some evidence to support each element of the offense, a criminal complaint will be issued charging with the offense. When you are charged with a crime, or under investigation by the police, the most important thing you can do is to STOP TALKING to the police. Anything you say can be used against you. I understand that this goes against your instinct to defend yourself, to explain your side of what happened, but you do not know everything that the police know, and you can easily make a mistake in the emotional atmosphere of trying to defend yourself from the prospect of being arrested. The most important thing you can do is say I WANT A LAWYER, and I WANT TO REMAIN SILENT. These two statements invoke your constitutional rights to not to be a witness against yourself, and to have counsel. Use them or lose them.
