You Have The Right To Remain Silent. Use It.

What should you do if you are placed under arrest, charged with a crime or have reason to believe you are under investigation?

SHUT UP. It really is that simple.

It doesn’t matter how great your gift of gab is or how many things you have been able to talk your way out of in the course of your life; you have nothing to gain and much to lose by trying to explain your way out of criminal charges. You are better off taking full advantage of your right to remain silent.

Minnesota police officers and prosecutors would love nothing more than to get you on the record talking about your alleged offenses. Much like squeezing toothpaste out of its tube, you can’t put back your statements once they come out of your mouth.

Stay In Control Of Your Story

One of the great benefits of having a criminal defense lawyer working for you is that you have an opportunity to let them handle your defense and control the way your side of the story is heard. When you talk to the police without your lawyer present, you risk losing control of the narrative and placing your rights at risk.
