If you’ve been arrested or are under investigation for a crime, you have the absolute right to remain silent. Anything you say to law enforcement can and will be used against you in court. It’s very important to keep that in mind because a lot of times during an investigation of a crime the cops act like they’re your friends and they’re there to help you.

They’re really not, because in helping them you’re helping them build a case against you. So it’s very important to remember you have the right to remain silent. And if you’ve been arrested it’s important to know you have the right to have an attorney present with you throughout the proceedings.

Now that’s why if you’ve ever been contacted by a law enforcement and are suspected of a crime or being investigated it’s important to have an experienced criminal attorney by your side to help guide you through the process and make sure you don’t do anything that can hurt you in the future.
