Frequently Asked Questions

Answers from Our Criminal Defense Attorneys in Kansas City, KS

Have you, a family member or close friend been charged with, arrested for, or accused of a crime? Are you frightened by the prospect of a conviction for such a serious charge?

The Kansas City criminal defense attorneys at Rokusek Stein Law, LLC have over 30 years of combined experience handling many complicated criminal cases. We know from experience that a good defense team makes it very difficult for the prosecution to prove their case.

If you have a case, do not wait until the police and prosecution have completed their investigation. Do not make statements to law enforcement which will later be used against you. Exercise your Constitutional right to an attorney and choose wisely. Contact Rokusek Stein Law, LLC for a free consultation.

After an arrest should I talk to the cops?

NEVER speak with the police during an investigation concerning any criminal defense matter. Everything you say will be used against you in determining whether to charge you and in the prosecution and trial. Cooperate with all law enforcement, but never self-incriminate.

Should I contact an attorney if I have not yet been charged?

You should call an experienced criminal defense attorney, particularly one with a background in working for state and federal prosecution, the first chance you get. Do not make a statement to law enforcement. Be polite and professional, but do not give information. Most criminal cases take a long time to investigate and charge. You need quality representation before the district attorney decides whether to charge you or decline charges.

Will I be charged even if the family of the alleged victim does not want me to be charged?

The family will certainly have communication with the prosecutor's office, but the charging decision rests with the prosecutor. For that very reason, you need someone to represent you at every stage of the case, including the pre-charge stage. Remember, everything you say to the family is subject to be used against you later. Consult with an experienced attorney before you start talking to other people about your situation.

What should I do if I believe that investigators or law enforcement has mishandled my case?

There are a variety of ways that law officials can make mistakes. Police officers and investigators must take care to handle all criminal cases with the skills and professionalism that such serious matters deserve.

Whether you believe there have been issues related to entrapment or if evidence has been mishandled in your case, you should contact an attorney to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your case.
