Mr. Y came into our office because the police has been trying to get in
touch with him. He had an idea what it is concerning, but was not sure
if he should explain to the police what happened. The short answer is
do not speak to the police without talking to an attorney first.
Criminal Defense Attorney in Houston I come across people that do not follow this advice and pay dearly for
it later. For some reason, people think that they can explain their way
out of situation by talking to police. Typically, people end up getting
charged for a crime that the police did not have enough evidence for a
conviction before they started talking. Keep in mind that in the United
States you have the right not to incriminate yourself. Use that right
before talking to the police and you will make your life much easier.
After speaking to us Mr. Y took our advice and was never charged with a crime.
