I was charge for lying to a police officer. They asked me if I had had anything to drink.
Gilbert, AZ |
I said no and blew a .03 on the little round tube. The officer asked if there was anything in my soda and I said no. I did have a beer an hour prior to the stop and there was an once of vodka in my soda. When questioned further I admitted to both.
The Fifth Amendment limits the manner in which police may question a suspect being held in custody. All questioning shall cease if such person being questioned in custody demands to speak with a lawyer. No information may be used against a person if it was obtained as a result of such questioning after a request to speak to a lawyer has been made to the police
Contact an attorney. You do not want this type of case on your record. I practice in Gilbert and the police here have a unique image among law enforcement agencies in the valley. I can share it with you so you understand what you are up against.
Wow - what a charge. Seems attorney Zachary has a close handle being in the local Gilbert area - take him up on his offer to discuss this matter - I feel sure that he probably will not charge you for an initial consultation - you are going to need professional assistance. GOOD LUCK

This is sort of the definition of lying to police, so you should consult with an attorney, prior to your Pretrial Conference.
