With Whom Should You Discuss Criminal Charges?

You Have the Right to Remain Silent. Use It.

Whether or not you have been arrested before, if you watch any crime shows, you have most likely heard some version of the Miranda warnings. When police arrest an individual, that person must be advised of his or her rights under the U.S. Constitution before they are questioned, including:

Choosing to remain silent does not just mean that you do not have to talk to the police. You should not discuss your case with anyone other than your criminal defense attorney. Protect yourself and your future by exercising your right to remain silent.

Only Conversations With Your Lawyer Are Confidential

Maybe you are released from jail or if a family member comes to visit, the first thing you will likely be asked is, “What happened?” It is a mistake to talk about your case to anyone, including your family and friends, until after you have spoken with a criminal defense attorney.

The experienced lawyers of Roberts Law Group, PLLC, can advise you of what you should and should not tell others about your criminal case. It may seem harmless to talk to a parent or a girlfriend or boyfriend about what happened, but the law protects only conversations with your lawyer and certain others (such as a spouse) from being discovered by the prosecution and used against you.
