I represent clients for whom English is not their first language. In my experience most of these defendants do not realize that in America, you are under no obligation to cooperate with the police.
These clients are shocked to learn that they could have refused field sobriety testing or refused to let the police search. Therefore, with the the help of my translation program any my wonderful assistant Reyna, I am going to republish my earlier post, Can I Search Your Car, in Spanish.
It’s important that all defendants understand that in America, you have the right to remain silent and not produce evidence against yourself, even if you don’t speak English. I know many readers get this sent out via email and may not appreciate old material in a new language. Let me apologize in advance.
