Borsberry: Your First Choice for a Criminal Lawyer Pekin IL Can Depend On

It’s time to secure a trusted criminal lawyer Pekin IL can depend on. That’s Borsberry Law. It’s critical to remain silent when faced by police questioning in an alleged crime.

Here’s how to react if you are labeled as a person of interest in a criminal case:

  • Ask to speak to your attorneys immediately.
  • Tell the officer respectfully that you won’t answer any questions.
  • Remain silent.

Watch out even for initial questioning. This may sound casual by police, but again, assume everything is being recorded. If and when you are formally charged, don’t discuss the case with anyone. You are within your legal rights to say “I’m not going to answer your questions until I speak to Borsberry.” Don’t assume the police will trust your word. In fact, they can arrest you with probable cause. Yes, they can ask questions, but no, you don’t have to answer them. Do the talking to us instead.
