If you have done something that is completely wrong and below the belt, you must understand that you are in for a really tough time in the coming days. However, that does not mean that you should just sit around and wait for something to come your way. Get up, grab your belongings, and catch the earliest bus, train or flight out of the town or city you are living in. Do not tell anyone where you’re going, as the people out for redemption will make sure they go to your loved ones, in order to ask about your whereabouts.
The next thing you need to do is find a place where you can spend some time and lay low for a while. However, if you have done something that has got the federal officers on your tail, it’s best if you don’t stay in one place for more than a day. FBI officers are cunning, and they will put two and two together and come down on you so quickly, you won’t even know what happened.
In order to avoid consequences like the aforementioned ones, the best thing you can do is leave the country for good. However, even if you have left your country, it does not mean that you are out of the woods just yet. You need to change your name, your whole identity, and maintain minimum to nil contact with the people you used to know. If you really feel like talking to family and old friends, do it via coded messages, so that no one is able to decipher where you’re living.
Once you are confident that you have escaped the punishment, you can roam about freely, and go anywhere you like. You can even visit your old town if you want, once everything has blown over and settled down - give this a couple of years. With time, people forget things, so you might even be able to meet all those people you left behind when you ran away.
