So many folks get into deeper trouble by talking with the police. Whether it is a recorded interview or and informal statement, this is a very bad idea. Outside the presence of an experienced criminal defense attorney, this is NEVER a good thing. While the police might claim they want to hear your side, hinting that this might change the mind of the District Attorney in filing charges, that is not their intent.
Every bit of information you give them will be used to strengthen their case. “Yes I knew the alleged victim.” “Well, yes I was there that day but…” “We were having an argument but…” are all puzzle pieces they use to construct their case against you. They will ignore the buts in favor of their own theory (and they do have their own theory). So, NEVER TALK TO THE COPS.
