First-time defendants in a criminal case frequently make costly mistakes during the earliest stages of a criminal investigation or prosecution because of their inexperience with the system.

Do not discuss your case with anyone, including your spouse, your mother, your best friend, your co-defendant, or your cellmate. Your conversation with your defense attorney is confidential; however, anything you say to anyone else is not. Do not answer questions.
