Facing Criminal Charges? Remain Silent!
If you have any police contact regarding your possible criminal involvement — an arrest, formal criminal charges, the police knocking on your door to just “ask you a few questions” — the best advice we can give you is be quiet! Exercise your right to remain silent, or your words will be used against you. If you must talk to someone, talk to a lawyer.
