A: When someone is in police custody, and subjected to interrogation, all questioning must cease if the person detained requests a lawyer. Also, if the person detained asserts their right to remain silent, police must cease questioning, however, my resume questioning at a later time. Please talk to your attorney about this, as there may be a basis for a motion to suppose any incriminating statements you may have made.
