Should I talk to the police if I'm not guilty?
Whether you believe you're guilty or not, it's never a good idea to talk to law enforcement without legal counsel present. Even as a suspect in a criminal case, you are entitled to certain rights and deserve to have those rights protected. Unfortunately, it is not unheard of for police officers or detectives to take advantage of people who aren't aware of their rights. If you’re being arrested or detained by the police, we encourage you to politely and respectfully decline to answer any questions unless you have a lawyer present.
Do the police need to read my Miranda rights before talking to me?
Yes, police officers are legally required to read the Miranda warning when they wish to interrogate someone in their custody. Even if you are not being interrogated, any statements you make while in custody can be used against you, which is why it’s best to politely decline to answer any questions without your attorney present.
Do I still need a criminal defense lawyer if I was planning on pleading guilty?
Even if you are planning on pleading guilty to your criminal charges, it’s still advantageous to have an experienced attorney on your side. A skilled criminal lawyer can fight for a more favorable plea deal or possibly a reduction in charges. If the police violated your rights at any time during the case, your attorney may even be able to have your case thrown out completely.
