Speaking with the Authorities
It is natural to want to defend yourself against criminal allegations, but if you speak with law enforcement officers, you run the risk of harming your case. The police work directly with prosecutors to build a case against you. Anything you tell them will only hurt your chances of fighting the charges in the future. For example, anything you tell the authorities can and will be used against you during the trial or any pre-trial hearings. It is important to be polite to officials, but it is also crucial that you protect your own legal rights.
Potential Defense Strategies
Criminal convictions often result in serious consequences including jail or prison time, hefty fines, probation and the creation of a criminal record. There are a number of proven criminal defense strategies for fighting different criminal charges. In order to determine which defense will be best for your case, it is important to carefully and thoroughly review all the facts and evidence in your case. A skilled defense lawyer will also look for any violation of policies or procedures on the part of law enforcement officials. If, for example, your rights were violated by a search and seizure that was conducted without probable cause or a warrant, the charges should be dropped.
