What a clusterfuck.

Caltech may have the right idea. Get your documentation, and take a drive down to either the State's Attorney or some other authority.

Step in, explain the situation to the SA. We know that you have tried to keep everything kosher. Worst case scenario, you have to get an immunity deal.

I'm with CalTechGirl dude.

Go Immediately to the Attorney Generals Office and any one else you can find as well

Contact a lawyer first.

Not kidding, you need a lawyer and you need one right this minute.

Then go to the Attorney Generals.

If any thing call Oddy, maybe she can point you right.

With SO you can amend. Being a whistle-blower is hard and may not protect you, but legally may be the best course of action. You don't have proof of what you were instructed, but you do know when you found out that it wasn't what you thought it was. That should be enough. But as the above have stated, you need to get to the AG and get a lawyer pronto. You do not want to be in such an investigation - you want to be the guy with the proof (please tell me you have it at home), the one advising, not the one being investigated. Run, don't walk, to the AG. SO is serious shit.

Ditto to what everyone here said. Those who deserve to swing for this crap, should, but you shouldn't. Please get a lawyer & watch your back dude.

I think the operative phrase is "Knowingly". You did the things you did based on good faith that your employer was minding his p's and q's. You did not knowingly falsify records with intent o deceive. of course IANAL.

Dude, I am so sorry! Hubby's work went through this about a year ago (remember, you two are in the same business). Sox is not something to mess with....

.....they are looking for a fall guy- which is totally bogus because supervisors do not make the policies.

I agree with Oddy. Lawyer up, AG up.....
I'll be sending good thoughts your way.
