Should You Talk To The Police?

One of the most frequently asked questions of new clients is whether or not they should talk to the police or submit themselves to police interview.�� One of the most powerful weapons in a prosecutor’s arsenal is an incriminatory statement by an accused.  Oftentimes one newly arrested, or under police investigation, will make an incriminating statement in the hope of securing one’s freedom by cooperating with the police.  Police are trained to, and do, actively encourage an arrestee’s belief that his cooperation will benefit the arrestee in some way.  It is NEVER appropriate to have any contact with the police, or submit yourself to a police interview, until you have fully discussed your case with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
