In this episode of House of Law, attorney Russell Araya from Ramos Law dives into the critical topic of verbal and written statements to law enforcement. He emphasizes how providing verbal or written statements to police officers or investigators can pose significant risks.

These statements to law enforcement can become ammunition against individuals in court regardless of innocence or guilt. Araya highlights the inherent vulnerabilities in such situations, where innocent actions or words might inadvertently implicate the individual. In other cases, one’s statement could lead to admissions of involvement in a crime. That’s why it is paramount to seek legal guidance and request the presence of an attorney during police questioning to navigate this process effectively. One can also exercise their Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination by choosing not to provide any statements. Through offering practical legal insights, Araya empowers viewers to make informed decisions when interacting with law enforcement.
