ONLY $375 ATTORNEY FEES FOR MOST ST LOUIS MISDEMEANORS
I get this question a lot, and I always have the same answer: whatever you say to the police can and/or will be used against you. Just because the cop acts like he is your friend, or if he/she tries to make you believe that “nothing bad will happen by giving me this information,” or anything else, does not at all mean that the cop has good intentions towards you.
So what should you do instead? If you believe that by speaking to a police officer your rights would be compromised (or that you would be placed in a bad position), then do not say anything. It’s as simple as that. The cop can’t force you to speak, and the law protects your right to remain silent (especially when someone in a position of authority is trying to get information out of you that could shed a bad light on you).
