Lying to the police is obstruction of justice and due process of law. It is a matter of being with or against the law. Various law agencies have various degrees of penalties for lying. Suffice to say lying or obstructing the law usually leads to incarceration (jail or prison) for days or years. The degree the accused went to lie or stop the law dictates length of time. One should cross their fingers for a lenient penalty.
