If you are arrested you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. You should speak to your lawyer before answering questions by law enforcement officers or prosecutors. Remember, even if you are innocent, you need to protect your rights to avoid a wrongful conviction, or even avoid a trial altogether.
- Do not make any statements (verbal or written).
- Do not consent to be searched or to have your property searched.
- Contact an attorney immediately.
The fact that you are innocent is no guarantee. Sometimes prosecutors eagerly push cases and innocent people are found guilty. Ensure your rights; get an attorney.
