A Criminal Courtroom Is A Lonely Spot
You Want To Speak With An Attorney Before Anyone Else
DO NOT try to explain anything to them. They have arrested you—nothing you say will convince them you are innocent, even if you are and they have made a mistake. Only ask for an attorney, then remain silent.
That famous line from a thousand movies and TV shows about “Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law” means exactly that: your words will be used to destroy your credibility and make you look guilty—don’t give them any help with their prosecution.
