Is it okay to talk to my family and friends about my criminal charges?

It is not advised to discuss any of your criminal charges with family or friends. Your attorney is really the only person that you should be speaking with about such important legal matters. Anything that you say or even write about the charges brought against you can be used against you in a court of law. From the moment you’re arrested, everything that you say from that point on can be used as evidence against you. Contacting an experienced lawyer immediately is the best way to protect yourself from saying anything that might incriminate you.
