Call the police to see if I committed a crime??


If I call a law enforcement agency to see if I committed an internet crime is that self incrimination?

Yes. The right to remain silent seems like the one all clients forget. If you call a law enforcement agency and ask them if you committed a crime you are identifying yourself and basically giving them all the evidence. Contact an attorney and ask them to find out, you may have to spend some money but it is better than the money you would have to spend in defending yourself. Also, internet statutes are ambiguous and can be used against you. In reading some of the prosecutors guide, I fear for anyone who does anything on social media or the web.
