If A Police Officer Reads You The Miranda Warning, Ask For An Attorney Immediately

If you have been charged with a crime, anything you tell the police or investigators can and will be used against you in court. Remember that law enforcement officers are primarily concerned with the alleged victims and that nothing you say will help you. It is up to you to look out for your best interests by not providing them any additional evidence a prosecutor can use against you at trial. Innocent people are convicted not for what they have done, but for what they have said.

Protect your rights. Before you talk to the police or investigators, seek the advice of a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer who will aggressively fight the accusations against you.

Tell the police that you are completely innocent of any wrongdoing but these are serious charges and you would like to talk with a lawyer before discussing their investigation with them. If they pressure you into making a statement, simply say four magic words: "I want a lawyer."
