It is critical that you tell your story to your attorney immediately. This is true for a couple of reasons. First, it is important to share your story while it is fresh in your mind. Over time we tend to forget important details. Second, your story is critical in analyzing the prosecutions’ case and preparing your defense. With this in mind, it is equally as important that you do not tell your story to anyone other than your attorney. Only communications with your attorney are privileged and cannot be used against you.
