I've Been Arrested - What Now?
When you've been arrested for a crime, it can be terrifying and intimidating dealing with police officers. It is important that you know your rights and how to conduct yourself at all times in order to avoid any potential issues that can damage your case. Take a moment and review your rights below, and if you feel that your rights were violated, mention it to your criminal defense attorney.
Here are some essential tips to know if you are approached by police officers:
- You have the right to remain silent. Police officers may try to question you or try to get you to incriminate yourself. What you say can be used against you, so it is better to remain silent. Never try to talk your way out of the situation or explain your side.
- You have the right to an attorney. When you get the chance, call an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as you can. The sooner you have an attorney on your side protecting you, the better your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome.
- Be respectful and cooperative. Don’t try to flee the scene, behave in a confrontational manner, or resist arrest. This could lead to additional charges or escalate the situation.
- You do not have to consent to a search. If the police officer is asking for your permission to search your belongings, you have the right to refuse unreasonable searches and seizures.
