What’s in a Name? | Criminal Defense Attorney Tip of the Week

By | Criminal Defense | No Comments

What Doesn’t Work: Using an alias that is pretend famous, rhymes, is alliterative, belongs to someone who has a warrant…or all of the above: “Yes Officer, my name is Johnny Depperson, I mean Nicholas Hickolas, I mean Craig Craigster,no, no…I’m Lindsay Lohansky, I swear!”

What Works: Never tell an officer “I know my rights.” You really don’t, and the officer knows it. Whether innocent or guilty, if you are being interrogated by police, they already suspect you did something wrong or were involved in a crime. You always have the right to a criminal defense attorney and have a right to remain silent, and you should politely and persistently exercise those rights.
