Woman: Speaking this afternoon with Scott Kraus, an attorney at the law firm of Helmer, Conley, & Kasselman, who has a long, long background in practicing criminal law, and an especially focused background in drug offenses. Scott, what's the one thing that you would tell someone who's accused of a drug offense?
Scott: Well, I would give them two bits of advice. One would be, do not give a statement to the police, and the second would be, do not consent to a search. Unless the police have probable cause in reference to an automobile, they would need a search warrant, and especially, to enter a home, the police would need a search warrant. And nothing comes good of someone accused with a drug offense giving a statement to the police.
Don’t let your rights be jeopardized.
