A: As a criminal defendant, your fifth amendment right to remain silent is very important. This includes public boards like this. I would highly recommend that you consult with a licensed attorney in your area confidentially, to discuss your rights responsibilities and explore possible defenses to the crime(s) you may be charged with.
