What is a Pre-Indictment Investigation?
Individuals who may be suspected of being involved in a crime are at a critical juncture. In situations where a crime has allegedly been committed but no charges have yet been brought, law enforcement officers and prosecutors may be undertaking efforts to gather sufficient evidence to charge someone with the crime. The most common tactic is to approach the suspect in a so-called “voluntary contact” where law enforcement is not required to advise you of your Miranda rights because you are not in custody. The most important thing to do is to consult with a criminal defense attorney before answering any questions. At the completion of such a pre-indictment investigation, a prosecutor may choose either to press charges or decline to prosecute. Having a seasoned North Carolina pre-indictment investigations attorney is absolutely necessary to ensure the best possible outcome, which can include halting the entire investigation and indictment process.
