What are the consequences for an affiant and police falsifying a police statement & police narrative.

Asked over 1 year ago - Homestead, FL

Basically I confessed to a crime and received discovery items from Public Defender,including a police report I can prove is perjured by affiant and a police narrative that includes statements that I know I didn't make. I pled not guilty and trial is set for June. What legal recourse can I take before trial?

    Answered . I agree with Mr. Rafter's response. You need to speak with your assistant public defender about a Motion to Suppress the alleged confession. If you intend to hire a private attorney, you should do so very quickly because she/he will need time to draft, research, and argue any motions before your pre-trial.

    Answered . Based in the somewhat confusing post I'd say the best thing you can do I'd hire a criminal defense attorney immediately. You have a confession, perjury, each is complicated on its own, taken together a real challenge. If you were thinking if suing, forget it. Defend yourself first.
