i'd go with D.
I believe the idiom is "professed ignorance" and "since fear that" does not sound right. "for fear that" sounds like the right idiom there.

Same here.. It should be D.

You professed ignorance of the crime.

A noun form(ignorance) is more appropriate than and adjective form (ignorant).

Also, The reason shuold start with "For" and not "SINCE".

Since has two meanings and is therefore less preferred to "for" in this case.
