When Will You Get a Chance to Talk?

By Spodek Law Group | July 27, 2023
(Last Updated On: July 27, 2023)

After being charged with a federal crime, you might begin to wonder when you will be able to talk to someone. Soon after being charged, one of the first people you should talk to is your attorney. You should avoid offering any kind of confession to the officer who arrested you or the prosecuting attorney. Avoid talking to any FBI officials as well as others who are involved in the criminal justice system. These details might seem like they are common sense, but they could mean the difference in going to prison for several years or spending the minimal time in prison. Sometimes, you might be able to work with the prosecution after talking to someone in order to lead the government to someone else who is involved in the crimes that you’ve been accused of committing.

When you go to court, it might take a few hours for the prosecution to deliver the evidence against you. During this time, the only thing that you can do is sit there until your attorney tells you what to do or until your attorney makes an objection to the statements that are being made. You might not be in a courtroom while listening to the evidence against you. Some trials take place in a conference room so that there are only the people who need to be involved in the case in the room at the time. If you’re incarcerated already, then you might have to listen to officers give details about your charges in person or through a video message. Sitting and listening to people talk about the actions that you’ve committed or that they claim that you’ve committed can be a challenge. It can make you feel afraid and as though you are no longer a member of society depending on how they paint your life.

As you listen to the statements that are made, you might begin to wonder how the prosecution gathered so much information in a short time. What you don’t know is that most officials spend several months and even years gathering evidence against you in order to put together a case that could result in you spending time in prison. The information that they have against you might not even be true. The only thing that you’re waiting on is to tell your side of the story so that others will know who you really are instead of seeing you as a criminal.

There will soon be a time when you can talk and explain that the charges against you aren’t what the prosecution claims that they are. You will usually have a chance to talk after the prosecution has completed their discussion. Even though you might want to say something after every claim that is made against you, it’s important to stay quiet until your attorney tells you that you should talk or until your attorney begins speaking for you. The last thing that you want to do is say something that could be used against you and that could result in time in prison because it’s seen as a confession. There will usually be time for you to talk to your attorney about the claims that have been made against you so that you can make statements that will be in your benefit. If you are unable to talk to your attorney or the attorney who is representing you doesn’t seem to want you to talk or won’t listen, then you should consider finding another attorney who can help. Before saying anything, you need to think about the details of the charges against you and whether there could be evidence that you committed the crime so that you don’t say something that will be the end of your freedom for a short time.
