I am suspected of a serious crime and am under investigation. What should I do?
If you’re suspected of a serious crime and under investigation, you should consult with a lawyer who can advise you of your best course of action. But you should remain silent and not discuss the case with the police. You should also be very careful about who you discuss the case with because if you discuss the case with someone other than the police and say something incriminating, that could be used as evidence against you later.
