Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Is the conversation I had with an attorney while I was being arrested in front of a camera admissable, or are the police supposed to turn the camera and sound off while talking to attorney. Also, after taking the first breathalizer test at the station, I was asked if I wanted another one. I answered no and was confused, then seconds later said yes I would and pleaded to have a second test. The policeman said it was already in the system and he couldn't change it. Do you think this could help with my defense.
