Modified Transcript for Hearing Impaired for “Social Media Felony Charges”
It’s not unusual for clients to call, especially in cases that involve technology, cyber crimes. Sometimes you see this in sex offenses.
They ask, “Should I delete my accounts,” and the answer is no. That actually could get you in more trouble.
It’s unethical for a lawyer to tell you to destroy your FaceBook account. It may make sense to stop posting, to maybe limit your exposure for future purposes but it’s important to stop and do nothing.
I like to say to clients and to family members, “There’s an old saying. Don’t just stand there, do something. In a criminal case the exact opposite is true. Don’t just do something. Stand there.”
If you’re going to do something, what you need to do is speak to your attorney.
You need to get good, sound, experienced legal advice.
There are so many times where I wish people would have called up before they made the second mistake. They may have made the first mistake. They make it worse but the second mistake and then they do the third mistake by not retaining an attorney in a timely fashion and seeking good legal advice.
Please, they’re called serious felonies for a reason, because they’re serious.
