At the Vannoy Law Office, I defend citizens charges with crimes in Goose Creek, South Carolina along with other areas in South Carolina. Often I am asked the question, "what should I do if questioned by law enforcement regarding something I did not do?" For the most part, law enforcement officers are good people who are doing a tough job. They put their lives on the line everyday to ensure the safety of the community. However, their job is to investigate, arrest, and prosecute criminal offenses. It is not their job to defend one's innocence or to mitigate one's involvement in a past or present crime. I regularly assist clients in dealing with law enforcement both before and after an arrest. If someone is questioned by law enforcement in a custodial situation, they are required to be read their "Miranda Rights". These rights are not just a step in the process for police. Rather, the Miranda advisement is there to notify the person that they have protections under the Constitution. That is where the lawyer comes in. Many times people respond to questions that, while they think innocuous, could end up leading to their arrest or conviction, depending on the situation. If you are being questioned regarding a criminal offense, it is good practice to seek the advice of an attorney prior to answering any questions. If you have been charged or questioned regarding a crime in Goose Creek, South Carolina or any other location in South Carolina, please contact the Vannoy Law Office today at (843) 761-0610 or through the contact page on this website.
