Do the police want to talk to you? 

This is called an investigation, and you should know all of your rights before you talk to the police, including the right to remain silent.  Asserting the right to remain silent or requesting an attorney prior to questioning is very important.  The police are not just trying to clear up the details, they are investigating a potential crime and want to get you talking to make admissions that they CAN and WILL use against you.

People are investigated for an assortment of things and can be charged with a crime well after the fact.  This is the principle of Statute of Limitations and it applies in criminal cases as well.

When someone pleads the 5th in a criminal case, their silence or refusal to speak cannot be used against them. You have the right to counsel and you do not have to answer any questions.

Common crimes that police investigate and can charge you with after the fact: 

  • Leaving the Scene of an Accident 
  • Domestic Battery 
  • Sexual Assault 
  • Battery from a bar fight 
  • Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Criminal Damage to Property 
  • Drug Induced Homicide
  • Other Serious Felonies
