My son is freaking out, his mother is freaking out....he swears he has done nothing wrong. Should he be worried that the police have asked him to come in and talk? should he have a lawyer present?
Criminal Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I can't begin to apologize enough. The system locked me out for about an hour and I couldn't get back until now. This happens on occasion and always at the worst times. I'm very sorry.

Ok, so if your son is being asked by the police to come speak with him, I would recommend that he not do so unless he has an attorney present. It is probable that the police want to treat this as an informal interview; however, they are going to be doing what they can to try to get him to admit guilt. If he is a person of interest in this, then they are going to basically try to trick him into making a commission. Also, if he has a lawyer, then he should be advised that he has the right to remain silent at all times and anything he says can and will be used against him.

I think that your son should cooperate to a degree; however, he must find an attorney fast and if he can't, he should reschedule until he does.

What other questions did you have for me regarding this?
