How to beat a Police Interrogation
In the last few months I have seen a few articles regarding how to beat a Police Interrogation. I am adding my two cents on the subject….
The only sure fire way for you to beat a Police interrogation, is to use your right to not say a word without a lawyer present. After you have given your name to a police officer and provided some form of identification, you are not required to say another word without a lawyer present.
One of the biggest frustrations a lawyer has is that people do not exercise their right to remain silent. Client after client have told me that they just wanted to just tell the officer what happen and instead of found themselves charged with serious crimes that have serious consequences because the police officer took their statement of “what happened” and use it for the basis to get a warrant for their arrest.
Police are trained in the art of interrogation, they have techniques that have been used and refined for hundreds of years. Police know the laws and the elements need to prove their case under the law. the POLICE CAN LIE to a suspect in their interrogation about anything. Police know facts that usually the person they are interviewing does not know or does not know for sure.
The best police when the police are talking to you about something they think you did or were involved in is to tell the police officer you will not answer any questions until your lawyer is presence. This is covered in the an earlier post.
