The way you make statements can impact your defense

Defendants who are facing any type of criminal charge should carefully consider their options for their defense. What they might not realize is that their actions before, during and after the arrest might impact their options now. If you think that you are under investigation or if you have been arrested, make sure that you know your rights.

We recently discussed the Miranda warnings and why these are important. One of the best things that you can do for yourself is to invoke those rights when you are offered the chance. When you are in this type of situation, you have to choose your words carefully. You must tell the truth and make only factual statements when you are speaking to the police.

Part of your defense strategy is to plan any statements that you are going to make. There is usually more than one way to make a statement. You have to think about how your statements will be construed. This carries over to the things you say during a trial or in plea negotiations. We are here to help you with this aspect of your case.

One thing to think about if you are facing a white collar crime charge is that there might be a paper trail. This point might impact what defense points you are able to use. Make sure that you are addressing the claims of the prosecutor and that you attempt to call the statements they make into question. They have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime. If you are able to introduce reasonable doubt, the jury shouldn't convict you.
