Your Right to Remain Silent – Speak Only with Your Lawyer
Unfortunately, many people who have been arrested and are charged with a crime make the mistake of believing that they can "talk their way out" of an arrest by explaining their side of things to the police. What is often forgotten is that it is the job of the police to investigate crimes and arrest people who they believe have broken the law. In other words, it is not their job to "work things out" for you, nor are they looking to befriend you. If the police are investigating you for a crime and they are questioning you about that crime, they are doing so because they believe you committed a crime and they want gather information against you prior to making an arrest.
Under the laws of New York State, you have the right to remain silent.
