Police Questioning Before an Arrest: What You Need to Know
If you have been contacted by the police, your first instinct may be to cooperate and answer all of the questions that you are asked. However, the risk of making self-incriminating statements is high, especially when the police are working to gather evidence that can be used against you.
You cannot be arrested for refusing to answer the police officer's questions. However, any questions that you answer before being arrested can be used as evidence at trial.
Should I Answer the Police's Questions?
In general, if the police are question you about criminal activity having an attorney present during that questioning can be of great assistance to most people. If you believe you are being investigated for a crime and the police are questioning you, it is advisable to contact an attorney before giving any information.
