Appleton Pre-Indictment Investigations Lawyer
If you are under investigation by a law enforcement agency, you may be tempted to make statements in order to declare your innocence. The best thing that you can do for yourself when arrested or investigated by law enforcement agencies is to remain silent and request legal representation. Anything that you say during your arrest or investigation can be used against you in a court of law, so it is imperative that you not make any statements until you have spoken with a knowledgeable attorney.
Police officers and other agencies are trained to obtain statements that may be used against you later in court. The Fifth Amendment gives you the right to remain silent and allows you the opportunity to speak with an attorney before making any statements. Remember that the more that you tell the authorities without legal representation, the stronger you are making their case against you. The authorities may not have a valid case against you without your statements.
