Why You Should Avoid Chatting About Your Criminal Case

Trust Us, It’s Not Worth It

“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.” Sound familiar? Police officers are required to give a Miranda warning to a detainee. However, anything you say proceeding your detainment can and will be used against your case as well. With over 40 years of combined legal experience, our team at Appel & Morse has seen it all.

It’s crucial you refrain from discussing any matters regarding your criminal case in order to protect yourself. The last thing we want is for a text message you sent or face-to-face conversation you held after your arrest to negatively impact your future. Even further, the California Consumer Privacy Act gives you the right to see what kinds of personal data larger companies are collecting about you, and similar to those larger companies, the police are no strangers to collecting your personal data.

We know the consequences of those seemingly “harmless” internet searches, phone calls and social media posts following arrests. It’s in your best interest to:

  • Avoid engaging with any and every social media platform
  • Be mindful of your internet searches, they are never private
  • Filter in-person conversations to exclude anything pertaining to your criminal case
  • Withhold speaking with the police without a warrant, even if it seems harmless

Most importantly, we strongly advise you contact us as soon as possible before you take your next step. Our premium legal team will offer you exceptional guidance every step of the way to ensure you’re informed and prepared for anything that may arise in your criminal case.

Our trusted legal team will handle your case with superior care and meticulousness. We tackle:

Each circumstance is unique, yet the bottom line remains the same: Do not speak about your criminal case whether it be in-person or online, and contact us to obtain the aggressive representation you need. We can be reached at (805) 467-6060.
