Most people do not realize that the cops are recording what they say….STFU!
When a police officer stops you for a traffic offense and approaches your vehicle, he most likely is wearing a recorder and most of the time, there is a video that goes with it. He is recording what he says to you and your responses. This is particularly true in a DUI case. If your speech is slurred, they will have it as evidence. If you are toasted, high or drunk and not making sense, it will all be preserved for the prosecutor to use in your trial. Smile, you are on candid camera…..
If you get arrested and are placed in the police vehicle, chances are, there will be a video of what you are saying and doing in the back seat, even if the officer is not in the car. When two people are arrested, they put them in the police car in the back seat and walk away. They do this on purpose so one or the other will say something incriminating. As a Sarasota criminal lawyer, I can’t tell you how many times in a drug possession case the key evidence of knowledge turns out to be something that was said while you were under arrest in the back seat.
When you are in or at the jail, your phone calls are recorded. If you call your wife, husband, parent or a friend, it is being recorded and the Sheriff’s attorney or the prosecutor will later listen to what you said. If you get arrested for a sex offense or a sex crime like Internet solicitation of a minor or traveling to meet a minor in one of the sex stings, I can guarantee that the police will be listening and recording your phone calls looking for incriminating evidence.
Keep your mouth shut no matter what. The right to remain silent is golden. Exercise that right. The walls have ears, even in jail. You have no right to privacy when you are in custody. Everything you say and do, even in your own cell can be recorded.
They are not supposed to listen to jail calls to an attorney but they do. They will deny it, but they do.
If you want to talk to an attorney, have him come to jail and have a face to face meeting. Most attorneys like myself will come for an initial consultation at no cost.

If you have questions about your arrest, your criminal case or your rights, call me Attorney Peter D. Aiken today at 941 366 3506
