The Police are Not Your Friends
Being in handcuffs or behind bars is a shocking experience, one that makes you lose your wits and normal reasoning. Authorities may seem as though they’re trying to assist your cause in taking your statement, asking you questions about your whereabouts or who can vouch for you on the given evening in question. Make no mistake – the police are only trying to further their own agenda and your expense. Our criminal defense attorneys in Atlantic County give the same valuable advice to every client, and yours today completely free of charge:
- · Use Your Miranda Rights – you have the right to remain silent and to request an attorney be present at all times during police questioning. You don’t have to speak, and it’s illegal for the authorities to force you to give a statement without your consent. Say nothing until one of our attorneys is in the room with you.
- · Sign No Documents – never sign any paperwork given to you by the authorities without one of our lawyers present. You might be signing a confession to a crime you didn’t commit, or agreeing to an arrangement that isn’t in your best interests.
- · Be Mindful of Recording – in New Jersey, police may record conversations in interrogation rooms. Making a statement before your lawyer is available could significantly damage your defense later.
