All Phoenix burglary defense lawyers know that you should never speak to the police if you have been arrested for burglary. It is a felony crime in Arizona and conviction may result in severe punishment such as large fines, imprisonment, and other penalties. You may try to argue with the police and try to prove that you are innocent. This is a mistake. Police and prosecutors may use your words against you. No one suspected of a crime ever talks their way out of trouble. They typically make their situation worse. Before you speak with police, speak with a burglary defense lawyer. Call 480-219-1366 for immediate advice from skilled Criminal Defense Lawyer Ashley D. Adams. She will explain your legal options, outline the applicable Arizona burglary laws and, most importantly, begin devising a rigorous defense of your rights.
