If you have never before been in trouble with the law, the criminal justice system can be extremely overwhelming and intimidating. It can be a challenge just trying to figure out who to trust and how to make crucial decisions. At the same time, an arrest – even without a conviction– can have a negative impact on your career, your social life, and your family. Naturally, you want to limit the negative impact to the extent possible while also being careful not to make a wrong step that could damage your case down the road. That means being very careful to whom you discuss your case and what you say about your case to anyone. Remember, your conversation with your defense attorney is confidential; however, anything you say to anyone else is not. With that in mind, do not discuss your case with your spouse, your mother, or your cellmate. No matter how loyal you believe that person may be, the reality is that the State has the power to force anyone to testify against you down the road. Only discuss your case with your criminal defense attorney.
