Protect Your Rights — Speak with a Lawyer

The Police Have No Duty to Be Truthful
One of the biggest mistakes you can make if you are the subject of a criminal investigation is to speak with the police without an attorney present. The police are trained professionals who are skilled in the art of interrogation.
In order to trick you into making a statement, a police officer may:
- Pretend to have DNA evidence
- Make false promises of leniency
- Manipulate your emotions
- Make false statements about the law
Anything you say to a police officer may be used against you in a court of law. They may take things you have said out of context and claim to a jury that you made a confession to the officer — even if you did not confess. It is their purpose to place you in a position where it is your word against the police officers.
Know Your Rights
You have rights. Some of your rights include the following:
- The right to remain silent
- The right to counsel
- The right to confront your accuser at trial
- The right to a fair trial
- The right to choose not to testify at trial
Attorney David A. Hill can help you exercise your rights effectively. Since 1979, he has personally handled thousands of criminal cases and hundreds of criminal trials/hearings.
