Know Your Legal Rights
Remember: it is in your best interest to refrain from speaking to law enforcement, child protective services (CPS), and other officials in order to avoid incriminating yourself. You have the right to remain silent, as well as the right to an attorney. Anything you say can and will be used as evidence to convict you.
You also have the right to refuse a polygraph, or “lie detector,” test. Police officers are not legally allowed to force you to take a polygraph test, no matter how convincing they may be. However, a polygraph test can be used to have your charges dismissed in the event that the test shows you are being truthful. We strongly recommend that you reach out to our legal team for assistance in preparing for a polygraph test before submitting to one.
