Criminal Investigations Defending Rights. Fighting Injustice.

San Antonio Criminal Investigations Lawyer

Getting to the Bottom of Your San Antonio Case

While investigating an alleged crime, the police will often contact a potential suspect to discuss the case. The police often give the reason for contact of “wanting to get your side of the story,” but this isn’t usually the reason at all. Remember, the U.S. Supreme Court said in Frazier v. Cupp, 394 U.S. 731 (1969) that the police do not have to be honest with you during their interrogation.

In cases involving sex crimes and property crimes, the police sometimes don’t have any physical evidence of a crime and they are looking for an admission of guilt from you to do their job!

Seeing Through Cheap Police Tactics

A frequent tactic employed by a police detective is to offer you the opportunity to submit to a polygraph, or lie detector examination in order to prove your innocence—which embodies the exact opposite of our criminal justice system of innocent until proven guilty!

Polygraphs are notoriously unreliable, which is the reason that polygraph results are not admissible evidence during criminal trials. The examiner administering the polygraph is a person skilled at catching you in a lie, and I have personally seen cases where innocent people fail this test, just because they are nervous.

Let Us Look Out for Your Best Interests

It is important to remember that you have certain constitutional rights that you can exercise during a criminal investigation. It goes without saying that anything you say to a police officer, or child protective services, can later be used against you. However, in certain limited circumstances, and under the advisement of a criminal defense attorney, you may want to discuss an alleged case with the police.

It is absolutely imperative that before returning that phone call to a police detective that you speak with a savvy San Antonio criminal defense attorney like Roberto Ambrosino. Unlike some criminal defense attorneys, Roberto Ambrosino will represent citizens during the investigative stage of a criminal case, without trying to charge you for representation in a criminal court case that may never happen if the investigation is handled correctly.
