Are You or a Loved One being Accused of a Violent Crime? Have you received a notice to appear in court immediately? Have you received an Investigative Subpoena? Want Your Rights Protected?

After the violent crime, the Police arrest any and all possible suspects. After you’ve been arrest or “detained”, the Police stick you in an interviewing room or the back of a police cruiser. Spoiler alert: both places are being video and audio recorded. While in the cruiser or interviewing room, the Police might let you use your phone. Call The Nunzio Law Firm Immediately. Do not call and talk to anyone about why you are being detained. After letting you sit for a while, the police will question you. Often, they will question you for hours until you give them the answers they want. You must invoke your right to counsel by saying, “I want to talk to a lawyer.” They must stop questioning you. If they have stopped questioning you, they either have to release you or hold you until a warrant is authorized for your detention.

Sometimes the Police do not have enough information about the violent crime, so they team up with the Prosecutor. The Prosecutor issues an Investigative Subpoena. Even if you are not the target of the crime being investigated, you can end up in jail if you are mistaken about major or minor facts. The investigative subpoena is often referred to as the “perjury trap.” This occurs when the Prosecutor asks you questions under oath. A lie under oath, big or small, is even for the Prosecutor to bring at least a charge against you.

Do not fall into the Perjury Trap. Do not give the Police a statement until you’ve hired The Nunzio Law Firm. Call today ay (616) 336-8100 for a free consultation.
