Do NOT speak to police without first speaking to an attorney. You have the right to have a lawyer present. In most cases the lawyer will advise you not to speak to them at all, but every situation is different. Contact a lawyer asap. All information and analysis provided herein is for Massachusetts law and Massachusetts cases, ONLY. If your matter or question involves the laws of another state please disregard this post and seek advice from an attorney licensed to practice law in the applicable state.

The short answer is DO NOT go until you retain a criminal defense attorney. Your son is not required to participate or answer any questions. Not to retain such an attorney is a potential recipe for disaster.
