Part of every investigation by a detective involves the police contacting you before filing charges. Many people believe they can give an explanation to the police that will prevent them from being charged. However, any statement you make to the police is considered evidence and will be admitted at trial. The police officer will appear in court and tell the jury everything you said. In addition, every statement will be construed in a fashion and used against you.
The police are not your friends and are not investigating you to prove you are innocent. The ONLY reason they want to talk to you is to gather more evidence to hurt you.
As your lawyer, the best advice we can give you is let us handle talking to the police. All police officers are trained in obtaining confessions and accumulating incriminating evidence. DO NOT make the mistake of giving the police information to use against you and DO NOT assume you can talk your way out of being charged.
