You're just going about your normal, everyday business. Maybe it's taking out the trash, mowing the lawn or getting the kids off to school. Then, suddenly, the police show up at your home, work or around the corner. There's a law enforcement officer right in front of you, or on the phone, and they want to talk. It is the begining of The Police Interview. They start asking you everyday questions. You're being questioned in the interrogation room. You're not in handcuffs. You're not in a police station or even in the back of a patrol car, just on the corner outside of work. Maybe you're having polite conversation with police over coffee in your kitchen. What do you do about The Police Interview? What do you say? Why do you still feel nervous?
In an ideal world, we could just tell everything we know, have seen, or have no idea about, to the Police. In the real world, Law Enforcement already has a basic idea of what they want you to say. They'll make their own interpretations of your statements.
Maybe it's accurate, maybe it's not. Maybe, no matter what you say, your words will be used against you. Please remember, YOU'RE NOT GUILTY just because you want to talk to a lawyer. Whether you're a wittiness, suspect or family member, you have rights. Whether you want to participate in the investigation, or not.
You deserve to have someone guiding you through this awful process of The Police Interview. We are the attorneys at Curcillo Law.
