It is a Wise Decision to Never Speak to Law Enforcement Until You Have Spoken to an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

Once an accused has invoked the right to counsel, he may not be subjected to further interrogation unless the accused himself initiates further communication with the police.

The United States Supreme Court has made it clear that the right to counsel attaches with respect to the specific offenses for which the prosecution has been initiated. Police and prosecutors may allege that questioning of the accused was unrelated to the specific offense at issue, in an effort to avoid constitutional protections prescribed by the Sixth Amendment of the US Constitution.

Whenever you have been interviewed or questioned by police, it is important to understand the protections afforded to you by the US Constitution.
