Spontaneous Sicknesses | Utah Criminal Attorney Tip of the Week

By | Criminal Defense | No Comments

What Doesn’t Work: Faking a seizure or saying you have a contagious rash to distract officers from the green leafy substance in the baggy, and then when they find it, claiming it’s just your herbal flu medication.

What Works: If the police come to your door and ask to come in, politely say you’ve always been told never to let officers into your house unless you are in danger. They may tell you that they can just get a warrant. Again say no thank you. If you give consent to enter your home, officers may find illegal things you don’t even know are there, and evidence of crimes you don’t even know exist. And even if you invited them, you may still want to talk with them outside on the porch.

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

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.
