When is a Facebook friend not a friend?

Under some laws your mere presence near an event can result in serious charges. We recall a case where an intricate theory was made by the police against a young man based on the “friends” on his Facebook page. People he had never actually met! But a jury might just hear he was “friends” with someone involved in a crime. It’s happened.

If you suspect or have reason to know that you are under investigation by members of law enforcement, you need an attorney who has experience speaking with officers and agents, and who will make sure you don’t give up your rights or implicate yourself. Contact us at Espada Law Firm 206.467.5987.
