Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I compose a reply for you.
Unfortunately, you've been charged and now your confession can be used against you in court. However, during the course of fighting your case, your attorney will be able to file motions for a hearing to suppress the statement. If the judge decides after a hearing that you were not properly advised of your rights and/or that the admission you made was improperly coerced from you, the statement will not be admissible at trial.
Meanwhile, you should start looking for a lawyer since you have plenty of time for your court date. And if you were in fact in another part of the country when the alleged crime was committed you should collect evidence of that (names of witnesses, etc.) and make sure you give that to your lawyer.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
