If you ever happen to find yourself on the wrong side of a set of handcuffs, you’ll want to keep the following three things in mind.
First- you’ll want to exercise your right to remain silent. You’ll want to provide answers to basic questions, such as your full name, date of birth, address, social security number and the type of work you do. You should avoid answering any questions about your case unless you have an attorney present.
You’ll also want to keep in mind that all outbound calls from the jail are recorded. If you are able to contact a friend, spouse or loved one, don’t discuss your case with them, either. Anything you say can and will be used against you in court.
Lastly, always make sure that you have several phone numbers committed to memory. The jailer will not allow you to use your cell phone, and if you’re unable to remember any phone numbers, you could find yourself in a very bad spot.
