If you're looking at my website then you no doubt have been charged with a crime and maybe even charged with a serious crime or have been contacted by the police to come down and to talk with them. Well, STOP! This is what you need to know: if you have not been charged yet immediately consult an attorney. There is no law that requires you to talk to the police voluntarily. You actually have a Constitutional right not to say anything to the police AND to have an attorney present if you decide to talk to them.
What to do if confronted by the police: immediately ask for an attorney. If you don't have one this keeps the police from asking you questions. Once you ask for an attorney the police have to stop asking you questions. It's the law. Tell them you have the right to talk to an attorney before you answer any questions. Many times the police have guessed or stumbled onto something that might seem illegal and they have very little evidence, if any at all, until you confess, admit to it, or otherwise say something that implicates you in the crime the police are investigating. This is probably the single most damaging aspect of someone being questioned about a crime: the confession. Do not talk to the police! No matter if you talk or not, the police have either already made their minds up to arrest you or just need that confession to seal you fate. Don't talk to them. Be polite but DO NOT TALK TO THEM until you've talked to a lawyer.
