Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi,Your first mistake was talking immediately to the prosecutor rather than in going and finding yourself a lawyer to accompany you when you went to speak to him. Of course hs was very nice. He wanted you to confess to a crime, and you did so, which could be used against you and was.Were you told at any point that you could have had counsel? Were you told of your rights?And what is the question you want to ask, and the present status of your case?
It's 11 PM here on the east coast and I am turning in for the evening, but if you reply, I will answer this first thing in the morning. This all looks pretty irregular to me so far, but I want more information to see what can be undone.
