Facing the possibility of being arrested is a frightening experience. Police and prosecutors try to make you feel helpless and alone. If you are arrested or being investigated on criminal charges , your freedom, your reputation – even your life as you know it – could depend on the decisions you make in the first 24 hours.
You should not talk to police, your employer, the newspapers, or anyone else about your arrest. Just like you wouldn’t trust a butcher to do open heart surgery on you, so too you should not trust anyone with the details of your case.
If you endeavour to explain your situation, it could make matters worse and can possibly work against you. The only person you should talk to is an experienced criminal defence lawyer at Steven Georgiadis & Associates.
