Exercise Your Right to Remain Silent

You have the right to remain silent in the United States, which of course includesFranklin, TN which was founded in October 26, 1799.

I have offices in downtown Franklin located at 407C Main Street, Suite 205, Franklin, TN 37064 and 426 Century Court, Suite 102, Franklin, TN 37064 (Next to the Williamson County Jail and Grumpy’s Bail Bonds).

Franklin is amazing and has so much to offer. It is also well policed. This makes it safe. The fact that it is safe could also lead to you being under investigation if you are suspected of a crime.

Being under investigation is frightening. Law enforcement and the Attorney’s Office work diligently to pursue their purpose of protecting the people of the 21st Judicial District.

If you find yourself under investigation then you need to shut up! There’s a popular video on the internet by the Pot Brothers where the say “It’s shut the (explicative) up Friday”. I say it’s shut the (explicative) up everyday.


You have the right to remain silent so do it! Exercise your right to remain silent. Do not voluntarily speak to them. Ask them if your free to leave. If they say yes leave. If they say no then you are being detained.

You also will know if your detained or in custody if they are asking you to sign a Miranda Waiver. You have probably seen or heard this on TV.

“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”

Do not agree to waive your miranda rights and unequivocally demand to speak and have your attorney present. Sit there and say nothing. For as long as they detain you. Say nothing.

This is often difficult for some. “Talking for some seems like they are a shark which have to move to stay alive. Some people have to talk to stay alive.”

Talking to law enforcement won’t help you stay free. You probably will live but it might be behind bars or on probation. Don’t talk to law enforcement.


"Shut the (explicative) up" every day!

That’s my advice if law enforcement wants to talk to you because you are under investigation for a crime. Don’t waive your miranda rights and demand to speak to your attorney.
