Property Crime Criminal Defense Lawyer for Shepherdsville and the Greater Louisville Area

Property Crime Criminal Defense Lawyer for Shepherdsville and Greater Louisville Area

Are you searching for a property crime criminal defense lawyer for an investigation or charges in Shepherdsville and the greater Louisville area? Property crimes, such as theft, burglary, robbery, and motor vehicle theft, happen much more often than violent crimes.

While some crimes are interrupted by the police at the scene, many have to be investigated by law enforcement authorities. In many cases, the police may believe they have a suspect but often don’t have enough evidence to bring charges. A common law enforcement tactic is to bring these suspects in for questioning in an attempt to get the person to make a mistake and inadvertently implicate themselves. In other cases, people can break down under interrogation and admit to their actions.

My name is John Schmidt, and after more than 25 years of experience representing and defending those who are accused of a crime, I would share several important tips:

  1. You have the right to remain silent.  Do so, and simply ask to speak with an attorney.
  2. You are not required to answer any questions law enforcement authorities ask except for your name. You must provide your name and then immediately ask to speak with your lawyer before answering any of their questions.

Don’t worry about thoughts like “I don’t want to look guilty, or like I’m hiding something.” It doesn’t matter how you look. You don’t need to be concerned about how this will make you look or cave in to their request to interview you. Be polite, decline to speak with them, and hang up or close the door. The police are most likely trying to implicate you, and you don’t need to help them do it. 

As an experienced property crime criminal defense lawyer for Shepherdsville and the greater Louisville area, I can tell you that the police often do not have a case without obtaining incriminating evidence from the suspect in that case.

The investigation process often starts with a knock on the door or a phone call from the police or local sheriffs asking to speak with you. Police interviews are to be taken seriously, and you want to avoid going alone for an interview or speaking to them on the phone. They are looking to obtain information from you that will be used to build a theft, burglary, robbery, or motor vehicle theft case against you.

When you hire me, you will not face the system alone. You will have the confidence and assurance of knowing that you have an experienced and proven criminal defense lawyer on your side who will work aggressively and creatively and devote all efforts to achieving the best possible outcome for you.
