Whether one should answer questions asked by authorities regarding suspected criminal activity is a choice many people in Georgia have had to make. Especially with regard to federal criminal charges, it can be very scary to face investigators and answer questions concerning particular situations. Many defendants choose not to speak on their own behalves; rather, they enlist the assistance of criminal defense attorneys to do their talking for them.
Sometimes, after someone has been arrested and charged with a crime, authorities might approach that person, asking for help to further their investigation. This appears to be the case in another state where a man and woman have been arrested and held in jail on suspicion of selling carfentanil, a drug 10,000 times stronger than morphine. Police say they are are hoping the couple will give them information that can lead them to others who may be involved in drug distribution in the area.
