What to do if you’re stopped for questioning

On Behalf of Kirsch Daskas Law Group | Mar 10, 2022 | Criminal Defense 

It is not a crime to refuse to answer questions but refusing can make police suspicious of you.

Police may “pat down” your clothing if they suspect a concealed weapon. Do not physically resist but make it clear that you do not consent to a search.

Ask if you are under arrest. If you are, you have a right to know why.

Do not bad mouth the police officer or run away even if you believe what is happening is unreasonable. That could lead to your arrest.
