Mr. James Duane, a law school professor and former criminal defense attorney tells you why you should never agree to be interviewed by the police or speak with them at all, ever!
Nothing, and I mean nothing, good can come out of speaking with the police. Your words can and WILL be used against you in the court of law.
1.) There is NO WAY it can help.
- You can’t talk your way out of getting arrested.
- You can’t give them any information that will help your trial, because it is considered hearsay.
2.) If your client is guilty, and even if he is innocent, he may admit his guilt with no benefit in return.
- What’s the rush?
- In federal court, 86% of defendants plead guilty at some point before trial.
3.) The Innocence Project
- In more than 25% of DNA exoneration cases, innocent defendants made incriminating statements, delivered outright confessions, or plead guilty.
4.) Even if your client is entirely innocent and denies his guilt and mostly tells the truth, he can easily get carried away and tell some little lie, or make some little mistake that will hang him. This is human nature.
5.) Even if your client is innocent and only tells the truth, he will always give the police some information that can be used to help convict him.
6.) Even if your client is innocent and only tells the truth and does not tell the police anything incriminating and his statements are videotaped, his answers can be used to crucify him if the police don’t recall the process of their questions with 100% accuracy.
7.) Even if your client is innocent and only tells the truth and does not tell the police anything incriminating and his statements are videotaped, his answers can be used to crucify him if the police end up with any evidence, even mistaken or unreliable evidence that anything your client told them was false, even if in fact it was true.
Officer George Bruch of the Virginia Beach Police Department continues the video by backing up everything law Professor James Duane states with detailed stories of how the police are trained to trick and manipulate people with tactics that help extract information out of them that can be used against them in court.
