Talk to an Attorney BEFORE You Talk to the Police
As a person accused of a crime, you have several rights, including the right to be represented by an attorney at every critical stage of the prosecution, and the right to remain silent when questioned by the police or prosecutors. The government bears the burden of proving your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and it is not in your best interests to help them do that by offering statements they can use to build their case.
Even a statement you think is innocent can be twisted and used against you. The wisest course is always to politely but firmly decline to answer questions until you have spoken to your attorney. Then as soon as you can, contact a Biloxi, MS criminal defense attorney. An experienced attorney will tell you exactly what you need to do to ensure your rights are protected.
Even if you are not arrested, if you are approached by the police, especially federal officers, for any kind of questioning, you must be very careful about what statements you give you them. Lying to a federal officer is a federal offense, and if they can get you to make a false or contradictory statement about some matter, they then have a charge they can hold over you to force your cooperation on other matters or get you to plead guilty to a crime you may have been able to defend against. The best course is to take the officer’s card and let them know your attorney will be in touch.
Aggressive Representation from a Biloxi Criminal Defense Attorney Can Make a Difference
Being put through the criminal legal process can be a frightening experience, and you may feel powerless and at the mercy of the police and the courts. Having a strong, aggressive attorney on your side will level the playing field, ensure your rights are protected, and make sure you have a say in your future.
