When questioned by police, many people make statements.
These statements may be complete confessions, or they may just be a few words, but either way, the police will likely use anything you say against you.
You may think you did not say anything to make yourself appear guilty, but even the simplest statements can be construed in a way that casts doubt on a person’s innocence.
Further, the police may try to show that you are a liar.
Whether a statement you made to the police will be used against you is often very fact specific.
In many situations, the police may not be obligated to read an individual their Miranda rights before questioning.
It is important that an experienced and knowledgeable attorney review the facts surrounding any statement you may have made before a determination as to the legality can be made.
Once the legality of your statement is determined, an aggressive strategy to defend against it, if necessary, can be tailored based on the facts and relevant law.
