Hello, thank you for the question.

This is a US site, but you're on the Canada Law category.

Are you absolutely certain that the officer told you that you'd be presumed guilty if you didn't make a statement? That sounds very unusual.

Expert:  Ulysses101 replied 10 months ago.

I'm still here if you want to discuss the issue. I hope you haven't gone in for a statement yet.
