Nothing is quite as troubling or frightening than being arrested, or being asked to speak to the police as a part of an investigation. Even though it seems as though the police are looking for information on others, they are often actively collecting information to incriminate you. The American justice system has numerous protections in place for those who are suspected or accused of criminal activity, but it is the responsibility of the individual to exert these rights. Inexplicably, many people do not!
Your most important right is the right to legal counsel. Under no circumstances should you speak to the police without having consulted with an attorney. Regardless of whether or not you actually committed the acts the police are investigating, you should always have counsel prior to speaking with the police. The quicker you retain a competent and experienced attorney, the better.
