ANYTHING you say or do can be used as evidence against you. SAYING what you did, is the same as SIGNING a written statement.
A client recently told me, 'I didn't give a statement or nuthin'...I I didn't sign nuthin', I just told them what happened to get them [the cops] to shut up...no big deal...'. Unfortunately, the client had admitted in great detail what had happened and the part (a large one) he had in committing the crime...all of which the cops were allowed to testify to and was the main reason the client was convicted.
STOP HELPING THE COPS CONVICT YOU!
