Know Your Rights and Use Them: In criminal matters, there are several bedrock principles, enshrined in our constitution, that are important to remember. A person who is charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty, and the prosecutor has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury. You are entitled to present a strong defense on your behalf, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with requiring the prosecution to meet its burden. We will challenge any search, seizure, or arrest that doesn't meet the standards guaranteed in the Bill of Rights and upheld by our nation's Supreme Court. Another important right is the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination (the right to remain silent) and your right to speak with an attorney or have one present at any police questioning (custodial interrogation). You should always exercise this right and request an attorney as soon as possible. Do not be afraid that asking for an attorney will make you look guilty to the police. They already suspect you, or they wouldn't be questioning you in the first place. The right to an attorney is your right, and exercising that right cannot be used against you. What can be used against you, however, is any statement you make to the police; consult an attorney before you agree to submit to questioning by the police.
