Criminal Defense Should I speak with the police?

One of the biggest issues that arises in the area of criminal defense occurs when an accused is contacted by the police and has to decide whether or not he should speak with them.  read about sex crimes It is a difficult question that even many seasoned criminal defense attorneys struggle with. Before we deal with this specific question, there are several general points that all individuals should keep in mind:

•1) If you lie to the police in a written statement, then you can be charged a crime which is punishable by a maximum of 2 years in prison

•2) If you lie to the police in an oral statement, then you can be charged with unsworn falsifications which is punishable by a maximum of one year in prison

•3) If you lie to a court or grand jury under oath then you can be charged with perjury which is a felony of the third degree punishable by a maximum of 7 years in state prison

Given the state of the law in Pennsylvania, it is generally never a good idea to lie to the police.
