It was a week into the summer and I had hardly been partying at all. The nights were warm and I guess that the alcohol got me more than I expected. I left my friend’s party with a date and we went to hang out at the beach. Thing is, I don’t remember everything that happened after that. I do remember waking up in a jail cell and being read charges. In praise of the 5th Amendment
The girl says I took advantage of her, that she was drunk and tried to stop me from having sex with her. I will tell you two things; I never talk to cops without adequate representation and I never raped anybody. I almost started talking with them because I wanted them to know that I was a good guy, that I would never do anything like that. But then I called my brother and he came and I was out of jail that afternoon. He booked me a lawyer at Leader & Leader after reading some of their outstanding reviews.
My Silence Saved Me
You see, the best thing I did was something that I did not do: talk to the police. Had I confessed to them, told them even that I was with the girl that night, then the police would have that much more ammunition to use against me. Their very job is to use anything and everything against you in the courtroom. This is why it is crucial, when you get locked up in Broward County, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach or Monroe County, to get yourself not just a lawyer, but a team of lawyers. Leader & Leader has taken over my case and has explained to me the process. My lawyers are working together to undermine the state’s case against me and have even been handling the media on my behalf.
Fighting the Good Fight
Being in the system is scary, the worst thing in the world, especially when you are innocent. Had I spoken with the police when I was locked up, they would have been able to use my words to make me look guilty. My lawyers are working to dismiss the charges, because, as they say, this is a “He said, she said,” kind of case. Had I spoken with the police in that interrogation room, they could have taken three things I said and linked them to the “victims” statement. That simple technique lends credibility to the original statement and could have served to convict me.
I am fighting back against these disgusting allegations with my lawyers from Leader & Leader. I have a good chance of beating these charges without even going to trial, all because I did not open my mouth while in police custody.
Don’t Go It Alone
My point is this: rather than talking to the police, which is how they get you, try giving your lawyer a call and seeing what they want you to do. If nothing else, they can help you put things in a way that will not damage your reputation for the rest of your life. When I found myself in trouble, I did not try and talk my way out of it but instead found a law firm that can handle these kinds of serious cases and has a proven track record of winning.
