If the police or Child Protective Services (CPS) has contacted you to discuss your alleged involvement a sex crime, it is safe to assume that you are a suspect. Is it in your best interest to talk? Absolutely not. Here’s why.
Once an allegation of a sex crime has been made, police or CPS will reach out to contact the person who is being accused. It is important to understand that you have not been charged at this point. You are not under arrest. You are within your rights to decline to speak and to consult an experienced sex crime defense attorney at once.
Agreeing to speak with police or CPS could be a detrimental decision. These agencies are not acting in your best interest; they are trying to gather enough evidence to file charges and make an arrest.
Speaking with a seasoned attorney before speaking with the police should be your first course of action. Attorney Ned Barnet has been able to prevent charges from being filed against many of his clients in the first place.
