Watch What You Say in the Back of a Police Car

Welcome back, students! We are finding that video can be solid evidence to help acquit people who may not be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. On the other hand, prosecutors seem to be pursuing video-taped statements from the back of the police car. It is prime time for you to say something offensive or incriminating. So, if you make a phone call while in custody - always assume you are being recorded.

Remember MSU Students: the Office of Institutional Equity is actively pursuing ANY complaint about alleged violations of university’s Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence policy. So, even if you are acquitted, or perhaps NEVER charged with an alleged sexual assault or harassment claim, you still face discipline or even expulsion from school.
