Don’t talk to the police – ever! Call a lawyer before you have police contact.
In a domestic violence case the statements made at the time of the offense will be relied upon more than any statements later given after thorough reflection.
The only possible safe conversation that can be had with the police is under the supervision of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
The police are under no obligation to read you your Miranda warnings if they simply come up and ask you questions.
Many people are of the understanding that if they are going to be arrested they must be read there rights ahead of time.
That is now a false statement. Only when the police have both placed you under arrest and are asking you questions about the case itself are they required to read you your rights.
If you or someone you care about has been arrested in the Cincinnati area, please call us at (513) 421-9700 for a free consultation.
