This month we will be looking at ways to protect yourself and your family when charged with a crime in Minnesota. Many of these ideas may be common sense; other suggestions will be from cases that we have dealt with over time. The main point being that you can’t trust the guy at the bar, someone you run into on the street, or a random post on Facebook for criminal advice. You need to talk to knowledgeable attorneys that understand the law and how to best protect your rights.
The police want to talk to me. What should I do? There are many cases that we see where people think they are better off to talk to the officer. Unfortunately, their conversations only made their case worse. Some officers try tricking people by using cleverly worded phrases because they know most people want to get stuff off their chest. That is why it’s worth calling a lawyer and understanding your rights. We have helped many clients through their initial discussions with the police. The difference was that we were there and that the clients had a better understanding what they had to do and what they did not have to do.
It is important when you are charged with a crime in Minnesota that you get advice from an experienced attorney. The earlier you do this, the better chances that all of your options can be explored.
