Protect your rights while under investigation

When you are under investigation, it may seem like your rights are being violated. At Herbert Weston and Tanya Weston, Criminal Lawyers, one of our primary roles is to make sure that does not happen to our clients. 

Unfortunately, state officials might not be your source of risk when it comes to your charges. The person who has the most power to compromise your rights during a criminal investigation is you. You would probably not do this intentionally, of course, but the fact remains that you are likely to face police and investigators who will attempt to make you give up your civil rights without even realizing it.

We have seen many different things that have damaged criminal cases for the defendant. Many of these were completely under the defendants' control. Examples include posting about investigations or criminal behavior on social media, speaking with investigators or police officers and even contacting potential witnesses. 

These are the types of behaviors that may seem like a good idea at the time but could have some potential for legal ramifications. For example, we have seen cases where a simple conversation between an individual facing charges and a witness leads to an obstruction or witness tampering charge.

You may have more rights than you realize when you are under investigation. Almost certainly, you would have more rights than your investigators would choose to inform you of.

Knowing what you do and do not have to say could be a major part of any criminal investigation. Please continue on our main site to read more on the subject.
