SAN DIEGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY--20 years experience
Same way you would if it was murder you're charged with: You hire a criminal defense attorney to represent you and fight the charges.
Start by consulting with a local criminal attorney for advice. Politely decline to make any statements to police without first speaking with an attorney. Use the "find a lawyer" tab above.

All my colleagues are correct. You start by saying nothing to the police. Then you hire the best attorney that you can find and afford. You cooperate with that attorney, and allow him/her to defend you. It's really that simple.
The response I have provided is general in nature, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. My practice is based in Rhode Island, and the law and practice in other states or jurisdictions may be different.
There is nothing that you can say or do, so do not speak with law enforcement. You need to retain counsel. If you can't afford an attorney, the PD will be appointed.
CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY - 20 YEARS EXPERIENCE This response is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer. Additionally, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship, since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information. Finally, the above is not intended as legal advice, since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details and facts, as well as a complete and thorough review of the discovery in the case. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from a criminal defense attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting.
