It is extremely important to know your rights and present a favorable defense. Do not speak to an investigator or any law enforcement officer. It is best to pleasantly inform any officer or investigator that you wish to obtain an attorney before answering any questions. It is recommended you maintain a pleasant demeanor and not alienate the officer. You would not want to make any offensive statements or statements that could be misconstrued and used against you. You may have various legal defenses that can only be explored through a competent criminal defense attorney in Colorado Springs.
These charges may keep you from having a security clearance, advancement in your career and can involve prison, if convicted. Penalties can include lengthy probation, a serious fine, public service, and potential jail as well as restitution.
