--- don't talk to police ---

--DO NOT TALK TO POLICE -- The headline may sound disturbing but read this article and let us know what you think. Also, knowing this information may keep you out of prison. Make no mistake, at JAILED we are 'Pro Police'. We respect the laws of the land and feel if someone commits a crime and breaks a law, they should be punished. First rule – if you are stopped by the police and are questioned, be polite, respectful, and courteous. If you think you have done something wrong or you think the cop thinks you committed a crime, you don’t have to lie to them; you simply don’t have to say anything. You are an American Citizen and have constitutional rights and what you say to the police can and will be held against you to convict you and put you in prison. Maybe you deserve to go to prison. However, let an attorney work that out for you. It is a cops’ duty to arrest you and find out what information they can about the crime you allegedly committed. It is your lawyer’s job to do ALL of the talking for you to ensure you are properly defended. You don’t have to wait until you have been read your rights to remain silent. Keep your mouth shut. During 2010, a nurse with no prior arrests, convictions, or criminal records was working in a Tri-State KY hospital. The nurse had illegally obtained four narcotic pills from the institution where they worked. For whatever reason, the nurse made a decision to tell on them self to the nursing board. This person felt from a prior addiction experience they had encountered a decade earlier with controlled substances, they may be experiencing a relapse and thought the right thing to do was to seek immediate treatment. After consulting with hospital staff personnel, the nurse was advised to file a report with the police, which is what happened within the hour. The nurse spoke with the police for 30 minutes with no lawyer present. Within a half hour the cops had convinced the nurse to sign a confession of stealing one pill and admitting to one felony count of a controlled substance. The nurse was convinced it was either do this or face four felony counts, one for each pill and 20-years in prison for the four pills the nurse had admitted to taking. THIS IS CRAZY! After the signed confession, the nurse realized the magnitude of what just happened and obtained legal counsel. Litigation has been going on for a year and a half and the counsel was unsuccessful in having the confession dismissed. Because of the signed confession, this nurse waived the right to a jury trial of their own peers. Once you make a signed confession, short of someone holding a gun to your head to get it, it is unlikely the confession will be able to be dismissed. --- This is precisely why you do not talk to the police --- you let your attorney handle the conversation. Yesterday the nurse showed up for their sentencing hearing and in two weeks from yesterday they were to start serving their time which we imagine will be five years. The lawyer asked for one more continuance because new legal counsel has been brought on to help further assist the case. The judge granted the continuance but decided to start the incarceration immediately until the continuance will be heard. Over one year ago, the nurse changed occupations and earns $70K a year in a different line of work and has a family of a spouse and five children. Do you think justice is being done? Will locking up this person under the conditions explained above accomplish anything positive for the individual, the society, or this person’s family? This is still an open case, so we are keeping the names close to the vest; we don’t want to upset any prosecuting attorneys running for office or any hospital staff wanting the death penalty and make matters worse for the nurse arrested. Once this case has concluded, which will be in the near future, we will post all the details, names, pictures, etc. Continue to follow this story at www.jailedtristate .com  (Apr 14, 2012 | post #1)
