Everyone has the right to remain silent…..Some people just can’t
I am sure that you have heard that the fish would not have gotten caught if had kept his mouth shut.
Silence is golden.
It is better to let people think you are guilty than open your mouth and prove it.
Confession is good for the soul, but they put your body in jail. Clam up!
THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE WHEN IT COMES TO HIT AND RUN CASES
If for some reason you find yourself in a situation where you panicked and left the scene of an accident, you have already made one bad decision.
Do not make another one.
Not talking to a criminal defense lawyer immediately is a huge mistake.
Coming forward and confessing is a huge mistake.
Calling the car in stolen is a huge mistake.
Getting someone to lie for you is a huge mistake.
Tampering with evidence is a huge mistake….and the list goes on.
If your hit and run involved alcohol or drugs and if there was serious injury or death you could be facing mandatory prison. You could be facing a loss of your driver’s license for life. Chances are, the accident was not your fault. Someone may have been crossing the road at night totally drunk. A person may have been on a bicycle without a light on the wrong side of the road. Someone else may have run a light or a stop sign. You may not have even remotely caused the accident. The problem occurs when you leave the scene. Do not provide the missing link in terms of evidence in a criminal case.
At our criminal defense firm we have been defending hit and run cases for decades. We are compassionate and feel bad for the victims but our obligation is to protect you, protect you from yourself. We will analyze your situation and work to minimize the consequences of our past mistakes. No one can change the past but you can change how it affects the future.
