If you’ve been accused of an offense, law enforcement officials will gather evidence to determine whether a crime has been committed and whether you were the one who committed it. During the investigation, authorities will likely question you. Police officers use various tactics to get a suspect to talk. These methods often result in the accused making self-incriminatory statements. 

At the early stages of your case, exercise your right to remain silent and politely refuse to answer questions. Also, invoke your right to an attorney and call Lapeer County criminal lawyer Bernard Jocuns. He can advise you on what to say and do to prevent you from inadvertently making statements or taking actions that could hurt your case later. Getting Mr. Jocuns involved right away also gives ample time for him to craft a compelling defense on your behalf.
