What should I do if the defense attorney or investigator contacts me?
The defense team (defendant’s attorney and/or investigator) represents the defendant in the case. It is strictly your decision whether to speak to the defense or not to speak to them. If you choose to speak to the defense and would like to have the prosecutor present you can request this. You should always request identification before speaking to unknown persons.
