IF YOU DON’T TALK, YOU MIGHT WALK. Before you go talk to law enforcement officers or agents, do not go unprotected. Call a lawyer. Officers are allowed to lie to you to get you to incriminate yourself, but if you make a misstatement during the interrogation, they are allowed to charge you with making a false statement. Officers and the media try to make it seem as if you must be guilty if you “lawyer up”. Don’t listen to them. They do not have your best interest in mind.
