Facing Arrest? Tips to Get You Through the Process.
Regardless of whether this is your first run-in with the criminal justice
system or not, an arrest can be an intimidating experience. To make matters
worse, the process that follows it is often confusing and complicated
for many. At Labovitz Law Firm, we are passionate about providing people
with the information and tools they need to successfully navigate circumstances
such as these.
How to act during an arrest:
Remain calm and respectful: Your behavior during an arrest can be used against you later on. Try
to remain as calm as possible during an arrest and speak respectfully
to law enforcement. If they mistreat you, your lawyer can use that as
evidence against them.
Assert your right to remain silent: You will have to comply with law enforcement and give them basic identifying
information. If they ask you incriminating questions politely refuse to
answer and say that you would like to speak with your lawyer.
Call a lawyer as soon as possible: It is always beneficial to get a lawyer involved in your case as soon
as possible. A lawyer can make sure that your rights are upheld and that
you have the best possible chance at a positive outcome.
What to expect after an arrest:
- You will be taken to jail.
- Your information will be processed.
- You will be taken to a holding facility or main jail.
- You will need to post bail to be released.
- Your case will be processed by the prosecution.
- You will face formal charges.
- Your case will be assigned to a Court.
The above information may not apply to all charges. To get an accurate
picture of what to expect in your specific case, it's good to speak
with an experienced attorney. The sooner you get a lawyer involved in
the process that takes place after an arrest, the better. An attorney
can explain your legal options to you and help you navigate the system.
