Protect Your Rights By Remaining Silent and Asking for a Lawyer
Do not talk about the allegations to anyone — especially the police. Each person you talk to becomes a potential witness the state can try and use against you. And if you are not particularly skilled with words, sometimes what you say can be misconstrued in a way that could make you look guilty.
Oftentimes, people think that they can convince people of their innocence, or the police will think they are guilty if they don’t provide a statement. But all you have done is make your future lawyer’s job more difficult by providing multiple statements to the police that can sometimes just seem inconsistent. In the majority of cases, by the time the police want to interview you, a detective has already decided to charge you. So the interview is simply an attempt to gather more evidence against you.
