If you haveve been charged with a crime of any kind do not talk to the police without an attorney present. In 1966 the Supreme Court ruling in Miranda v. Arizona, it was established that when anyone is being taken into police custody they must be told their Miranda rights which include these four statements:
- “You have the right to remain silent.”
- “Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.”
- “You have the right to an attorney.”
- “If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.”
They’re not kidding. No matter how charming and smart you are, say nothing and call a lawyer. Many, if not most people, accused of a crime have an idea charges might be looming. Researching criminal lawyers in the St. Louis area before you need to make that call makes sense.
Obtaining referrals and making contact with lawyers you are considering will alleviate stress on the day you are actually charged. Due to attorney-client privilege a lawyer, in most cases, cannot be compelled to testify against you in a court of law. The more experience a lawyer has dealing with situations similar to what you’re facing the better, as they advise you on strategies and the possible outcomes you’re facing.
The McKay Law Firm has practical experience representing clients in many types of criminal matters and will offer a free consultation to discuss your situation. For more information contact us.
