So you got busted. The cop tells you to come clean after reading your rights. He tells you that “I’m not here to judge you” and that he doesn’t think that you’re a bad person. He says that he’s not recording you either. He also says that he doesn’t want to make this a big deal and that he’s going to cut you some slack if you agree to cooperate. Guess what? He’s just trying to gain your trust. He is going to feed you all the stuff that you want to hear. This is interrogation 101. Come on, you’ve seen the movies. You know what I’m talking about. The good cop – bad cop routine; the benevolent do good cop who is trying to help you out; and the cop who just wants answers. You know, the one who just wants the truth. He will let you loose if you cooperate. That cop is still going to throw the book at you. So what do you do? Just one thing. Exercise your right to an lawyer. Make sure it’s a good California criminal defense attorney from Wallin & Klarich.
