Talking to Police


In the past few weeks, the phrase I find myself repeating more than anything is "stop talking to the police." Individuals call me with concerns that they may have committed a crime and are afraid they will be arrested. It always follows with, "when the police called me, I told them...."

This is one of the most frustrating things to hear because I wish I had been able to step in earlier. The police are NEVER calling you to give you helpful advice as to how to avoid being prosecuted. Everything you say to an officer will be used against you. And in each scenario, the story is the same...."the police told me I would be better off if I cooperated with them."
