What if a defense attorney contacts me?

If the defendant’s lawyer or someone working on the defendant’s lawyer’s behalf asks to speak to you about the case, you have the right to refuse.  The defense attorney’s job is to gain information that will help his client and anything that you tell him/her can be brought up later in court.  It is for you to decide if it is in your best interest to discuss your case with anyone other than the prosecutor that is assigned to your case.
