If I’m being implicated in an embezzlement case and was contacted by the detective on the case prior to referring it to the DA, should I meet with him?

Does it help or hurt me to do so? Will I be arrested?

Never never never never meet with a detective/police officer/go to the precinct unless you have an attorney accompany you or advise you of your rights.
