Should I Speak with the Police?

Criminal Defense FAQ – Denver Criminal Lawyer

We have all heard the phrase "You have the right to remain silent." But do you know what that means and why? Anyone who is arrested has the right to remain silent because anything that they say could be used against them in their court trial. This means thatyou do not have to speak with the police when you are arrested.

Law enforcement often tries to get arrested individuals to talk, either through persuasion, tricks, or intimidation. Know your rights and fight for them! Respectfully tell your arresting officer(s) that you know your rights and that you will not speak until you are represented by a lawyer. No matter what the police say or do, you are not entitled to say a word to them about anything. Remain silent and call a Denver criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
