Avoiding Self-Incrimination

Self-Incrimination- The act of exposing oneself generally, by making a statement to “an accusation or charge of crime; to involve oneself or another person in a criminal prosecution or the danger thereof.” (Wikipedia)

If you are a suspect of a crime, your rights and freedom need to be protected. You can accidentally harm or incriminate yourself and damage your case, which can jeopardize your freedom and any formal steps taken by law enforcement. Your rights and your future can be negatively impacted by what you say and what you do. Before speaking with law officials, seek a criminal attorney such as Thomas Rowsey.

According to the Fifth Amendment you have a Constitutional right not to testify against yourself.

In addition to legal help from a criminal attorney, there are other ways to avoid self-incrimination.

  1. Do not talk to police. Anything you say can be used later against you in court. Remain calm and respectful and listen to your Miranda warnings.
  2. Do not talk to others about the incident. Statements made to other people may be used during a trial.

If you’re being suspected of a crime, it can be scary. You may be tempted to say something that could ultimately find you guilty of a crime. If you have questions about your rights, contact Thomas C. Rowsey immediately. He will ensure that your constitutional rights are being met and help you invoke your Fifth Amendment rights. Don’t’ risk your innocence without qualified legal advice and assistance from Thomas C. Rowsey. He has represented individuals and their criminal legal cases for more than three decades and can represent you in your time of need.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
