Learn More About the Rights You Have as the Subject of an Investigation

Posted on

This video discusses how to best protect yourself if police are making you the target of an investigation. The most important thing to remember is that you have the right to remain silent. Just like you do not have to testify against yourself in court, you can also invoke this right during an investigation.

Respectfully refrain from volunteering extra information and ask to speak to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, wait until you are formally charged in the investigation and then ask for a public defender or court-appointed counsel. Both options will provide you with essential legal help.

Your civil rights cannot be infringed upon just because you are the target of a police investigation. If you are facing police harassment, contact the Philadelphia-based Law Offices of Patrick Geckle. We are experts at civil rights law, so call us at (215)-735-3326 for a consultation today.
