Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney whowill try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If no one has been charged with any crime, then you don't have to do anything and can simply refuse to talk to the police. That is your right under the law.
If they want to charge you with something, then you are entitled to an attorney to defend you if you can't afford your own.
So I see no reason for you to speak to them at all, whether they have charged you or not.. No good ever comes of speaking to the police when there are possible charges because the whole point is to get you to incriminate yourself so they have a stronger case.
You are jumping the gun a bit here if no one has been charged with a crime with asking about having a trial.. That comes far later down the road..
You can't be forced to speak to the police at all so that is the best way to keep it...
If it were me, I would just not respond at all. If they wanted to bother to come around again and stop by, I would just then say I changed my mind and don't have anything to say and leave it at that.
