The first few moments after an arrest are crucial. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Do not answer any questions: The police will likely try to interrogate you and get you to make incriminating statements – don’t fall for their tricks. Politely but firmly state that you will not answer any questions without your attorney present.
  • Don’t consent to any searches: You have the right to refuse searches without a warrant.
  • Invoke your right to an attorney: As soon as you’re arrested, state clearly that you are invoking your right to legal counsel.
  • Don’t answer any questions until your lawyer is present. Do not attempt to explain or talk your way out of the arrest, either.

Finally, call a criminal defense attorney immediately. This is a situation that you do not want to handle alone. Get the skilled legal representation you need to fight the charges and protect your future.
