Exercise Your Right to Remain Silent
Get a Lawyer Immediately
If you if you have been arrested, charged with a crime or are under police investigation, resist the temptation to talk to the police, prosecutor or victim(s). As they say on TV, everything you say can and will be used against you.
The rules of evidence will apply at your trial. If you do not know the rules of evidence, you will find that you are at a severe disadvantage by representing yourself.

How Does a Lawyer Help?
- They investigate your case and determine if there is a legal defense that you might not know exists.
- They effectively question the state’s witnesses, call witnesses and question any witnesses that you may have.
- They can help you decide if you should testify, or if you should remain silent. Even if you are found guilty, a lawyer can still help you by arguing about the sentence to be imposed and explaining your rights concerning any appeal.
- If you do not obtain a lawyer by the date of your trial, the Judge will likely find that you have waived your right to a lawyer. In that event, your case will be heard without a lawyer. That is never good for you.
