It is usually hard to think about all of the crimes that you have committed before you actually commit or you have been accused of doing a crime. Even though it is possible that you can think of something that you have illegally it wouldn’t be the smartest thing to do so. The smartest thing that you could do is to not do anything that could get you in trouble with the law. Especially if you have an open criminal case. You should especially avoid staying out of trouble if you aren’t guilty of the crime that you are being accused of committing because it will not go so good for you in the courthouse.
The only duty that a police officer has to do is to maintain and apply the law. They will try to prove that you have committed a crime that you are accused of doing at the time of you being arrested. Mind you, anything that you say to the police officer will be used against you in the court of law which can make the position that you are in worse even if you know that you are innocent. You can fall for the easiest scheme that the officers like to play when they are about to make an arrest which is questioning, even though that their goal while making an arrest is to put the right person in handcuffs. You can put yourself in even more trouble that you are already in if you decide to answer any of the police officers’ questions that they throw at you. You should let your attorney always talk to the police officers for you. The only time you should talk to a police officer is when your attorney informs you that it is okay for you to.
No matter the reason for the encounter with law enforcement you should always be wise in your decisions. Speaking with a skilled criminal defense attorney before or after an encounter is one of those wise decisions to make. Because you may not know or practice law, there may be a few things you should not have done or could have done differently. As well as something even the law enforcement officer should not have or perhaps even done illegally. The best option is to speak with a criminal defense attorney, like from The Lynch Law Group, to make sure at the very least, you are protected.
