Potential witnesses in criminal investigations sometimes contact our Fort Worth TX criminal defense lawyer to ask for advice about testifying in a case. Generally, a witness has evidence related to the case but will not be subject to prosecution, such as the cashier at the gas station in a bank robbery. As a witness, your role is to tell the truth. However, you might face the following conflicts:
- You have sympathy toward the subject of the investigation, or
- You might be hiding your own scandal, such as a drug addiction or an affair.
You probably should not ask for immunity as the prosecutor could decide to target you in the case. If you are a witness in an upcoming criminal case and if you need further legal counsel, contact our Fort Worth TX criminal defense lawyer at the Law Office of Bryan P. Hoeller.
