What Every Person Should Know About Criminal Law

What Every Person Should Know About Criminal LawThere are a few basic facts that everyone should know about criminal law. It’s scary when you are accused of something you did not do. It’s easy to just assume the justice system will do its job but that’s not always the case.

They Don’t Know You Are Innocent

It’s sad to think that there are innocent people sitting in prison for things they did not do. Unfortunately it’s the ugly truth. If you are accused of committing a crime, it is important that you understand your rights to properly get the evidence that will prove your innocence. Don’t trust the cops, they are trying to get evidence to convict you. They may act nice, but they are not your friends. Trust your attorney, they have your best interest in mind.

Do Not Talk And Ask For A Lawyer

When you are accused of a crime, they may want you to make a statement. Even if you feel that you are obviously innocent, you should have a legal advocate on your side. Tell them “I would like to speak to my attorney before I answer any questions.” Remain silent and wait for your attorney to be present.

The Police Can Lie To You

It’s not widely known that the police can lie to you about anything to try and elicit a confession. Don’t talk to them without an attorney present. This will prevent them from trying to coerce a confession by malicious means.

Never Consent To A Search

Do not give your consent to search your home, car, self without a lawyer’s advice. You have a 4th Amendment right to privacy and they would be required to get a warrant if you do not consent to being searched.
