When asked to comment, Lauer said, “If you’ve been arrested or been brought into the station for questioning about a drug crime case, the best thing to do is to let your legal representation communicate on your behalf with law enforcement.”
That said, there are just two things that someone should do when dealing with police officers.
When asked to elaborate, Lauer said, “Remember that you have the right to remain silent no matter whether you’ve been stopped on the street or have been brought into the station for questioning. The only two things you need to do is to give law enforcement your full and correct name and show them your identification.”
Lauer added that once someone clearly states that they’re not willing to talk, he made the point that if law enforcement continue to question that person then they risk having any statements they submit in a case thrown out in court.
When asked why he thought it was so important to remain silent Lauer said, “The most important reason to keep silent around police officers – even if it’s just to correct a misunderstanding – is that it could harm your defense before your case even begins.”
“When in police custody, a lot of people are tempted to explain their side of the story on the false assumption that law enforcement will drop the case. Many think that the police are on their side and will exonerate them. However, this is far from the truth,” Lauer said.
He added that the main reason law enforcement conducts interviews is to gather information for probable cause to carry out an arrest or warrant to search someone’s home or vehicle.
Another critical thing to keep in mind is to avoid speaking with friends and family about a charge or putting anything in writing.
“Don’t put anything in writing when communicating with friends or family about your case including emails, text messages and letters. Any written evidence can be collected by the police and used against you in a court of law, never mind any conversations you’ve had” he commented.
