What You Need To Know For Your Criminal Case

Below are some tips that you need to keep in mind if you find yourself in a situation where you think you may be under arrest.

Remain calm and silent

If the police are taking you into custody, then you should avoid doing anything to provoke additional action from them against you. Remain calm and cooperate with their lawful directions. You do not need to consent to their actions, but you should not resist them. You do not have to speak to them or answer any questions without your attorney present

Request access to your defense attorney

In addition to the right to remain silent, you also have the right to halt all questioning until your lawyer is present. With your lawyer on hand, you can be protected from unfair interrogation techniques and ensure that all of your rights are respected throughout the officers questioning.

Let your attorney handle your defense

Never try to handle criminal charges on your own. Many prosecutors will try and intimidate you with severe charges in order to scare you into taking a deal that they want, however that can often lead to significant reputational harm and criminal penalties that are not fair to you. Your attorney can counter this by negotiating with the prosecutor until the deal is fair to you, and you can be confident that you are not being unfairly prosecuted.
