Understandably, people facing criminal charges are often unclear about the difference between exercising their constitutional right to remain silent versus appearing guilty by not cooperating with authorities. In all cases, it is best to exercise your constitutional right to remain silent.

Police officers will advise you of your right to obtain an attorney but will immediately start asking you questions. Before addressing any questions, consult an experienced criminal defense attorney well-versed in the local criminal justice system.
