What you say on the witness stand, can be used against you.
You may have a perfectly good explanation of why you are not guilty of what you are charged with...but if you admit another crime while testifying, you are giving a statement that can be used to prosecute you for that other crime. Before you testify, discuss everything you think you want to say with your defense attorney to be certain you are not making matters worse, and whether you should be giving up your civil right to remain silent.
