Akron Criminal Lawyer
You have been charged with a crime. What do you do?
The police want to talk to you. What do you do?
You have committed a crime. What do you do?
Do you face drug possession charges? Assault? Sex offenses? Driving drunk? Shoplifting? Driving under suspension? What do you do?
Whatever the charges, the first thing to remember is that you have the right to remain silent. Do so.
You have a right to counsel. Hire one.
The first thing to understand about criminal activities is that the police do not know exactly what you did unless you tell them.
The police are not necessarily your friends. If they are talking to YOU, you are probably the suspect. Do not speak to police before you speak to a qualified criminal defense attorney. Even if you are innocent, do not share your “side” of the story unless and until you have had the opportunity to consult with counsel.
When you do speak with counsel, you must be honest about the entire story. If you leave something out to your attorney just to make yourself look good, you are hindering the flow of good advice as to whether or not you should speak to the police. By the way, if you did it, it does not mean the police can prove you did it. And even if they can prove it, it does not mean that you must plead to the charges filed.
My job as your attorney is to secure your acquittal or in the alternative minimize the impact of what you did.
Do not leave your future to chance. Hire a qualified criminal defense attorney.
