When dealing with police, remember these important points:

  • You have the right to remain silent, use it. Trying to talk your way out of an arrest is a very bad idea.  When police feel that probable cause may exist to arrest exists, you will be expertly questioned on the spot.  Police can legally concoct false statements and stories in a devious attempt to extract more evidence that can be used against you in court.  Don’t fall for the typical “We have a witness” lie.  Be polite & physically cooperative, but say nothing other than “I  want to speak to an attorney”. A felony or misdemeanor arrest is an intimidating and life-changing event. The entire Criminal Justice system is working against you and to convict and punish you as quickly as possible. Don’t help them by hoping that if you appear helpful when questioned that they will just let you go – it never works that way. If you find yourself in this unfortunate position, don’t talk to anyone before you consult with an outstanding Criminal Defense Attorney.
