Unfortunately for you, you confessed to the possession when they asked you if you had consumed the beer. Without that, you would have an excellent defense case. Even so, you certainly need to keep this off your permanent criminal record and I can help. Visit to discuss. Tim Klisz

Bob is murdered.

The police interview Bob's acquaintances asking each if they killed Bob.

When questioned, Frank tells the police "I killed Bob".

Frank is arrested and charged with murder even though no other evidence of his culpability exists.

Frank has to go to court.

What should Frank do?

ANS: Since Frank is completely clueless about defending himself, maybe Frank should get a lawyer.
