Criminal Defense Law Tip of the Day

I am now starting a new trend on my blog as well as on my Google Plus Page.
I am now offering the Criminal Defense Tip of the Day.  These tips are intended to help people that may need help in the criminal defense field.  I would like any feed back you may have regarding this.

Today's Criminal Defense Tip #1

Tip #1. Did you know that if the police are questioning you, once you inform the police that you would like to speak to an attorney the police are supposed to refrain from asking you any more questions.  So if you are being questioned by the police, ask to speak to a lawyer. This should prevent the police from asking any further questions of you.

  1. I wish I would have known this earlier. I was being questioned by police for something I had no part in. I told them I didn't want to talk to them without an attorney present but they kept trying to push me for more information. It seemed like they were trying to trap me as well by asking confusing, incriminating questions.

  2. I actually didn't know that the police are supposed to refrain from asking further questions if you ask to speak with an attorney. I don't anticipate being in a situation where I'm being questioned by the police on criminal charges, but this should be good information to keep in mind anyway. You never really know when things like this could be useful in the future.
