Boise Criminal Lawyers - Criminal Defense Attorneys (208) 472-2383

Charged with a Crime?  What Not to Do -
As a Boise Criminal Lawyer people often call me after they have committed a crime.  They also call me when they have already made some serious mistakes that can effect their case.  If , as a criminal attorney, I could educate the general public on what to do or not to do after they are arrested, many people would be prevented from getting themselves into more trouble than they are already in.

Besides the obvious mistakes of violating a protection order, violating your probation or your parole, driving with a suspended licenses or drinking and driving while on probation for a DUI charge there are mistakes you can make before you have been found guilty or plead guilty to a crime.

If you are in custody the very first rule you must abide by is not to say anything to anybody, on the phone or over an internet chat, that might be incriminating.  I have had prosecuting attorneys use evidence against my clients in court that they discovered by listening to their phone conversations.  Your conversations are not protected and can and will be used against you.

The next thing you must keep in mind as a criminal defendant is to never speak to a potential witness.  If you absolutely must speak to them, do not say anything about your case.  The last thing you want is to be accused of is trying to influence a witness.  Criminal lawyers are trained in questioning witnesses.  They know how to get them say what they want or not to say what they don't want them to say.  Let the criminal defense attorneys do the talking to the witnesses.

Finally, you've seen it on TV, you've heard it, you've read it - "You have the right to an attorney, anything you say can and will be used against you".  Nothing can be more true than this.  When the police read you your Miranda rights, they are serious.  Get an attorney before you say anything!
