    That completely depends on whether:

    - You have a duty to produce evidence because of your job (such as a police officer)

    - You have been served a subpoena to produce the evidence

    Generally speaking, if neither of the above are true, then you won't face any jail time. It's not a crime to fail to reveal evidence.
