What to Do After an Arrest
An arrest for any criminal offense such as those listed above can be frightening and nerve-wracking, no matter how many times you’ve experienced it. Although you may feel caught off-guard in the “heat of the moment” during your arrest, it’s important that you remember some important steps to help prevent a bad situation from getting worse.
After an arrest, we encourage you to keep the following information in mind:
You have rights: Police officers are required to read your Miranda Rights when they arrest you. You have the right to remain silent, obtain an attorney, and if you cannot afford an attorney, you have the right to a public defender. Anything you say can and will be used against you. Whether or not the arresting officer informs you of these rights, we urge you to exercise them regardless.
You should avoid answering questions: As we mentioned above, you have the right to remain silent. This is one of the most important rights you have after an arrest because staying silent could ultimately help you get reduced or dismissed charges.
Police officers are only allowed to ask for your license, registration, and proof of insurance if they pull you over in your car. If they stop you on the street, you should remain silent. It’s your right. However, if the police give you a ticket when you’re not in your vehicle, the only information you have to give is your name and birthdate, as well as your signature on the ticket.
Call a lawyer: You have the right to an attorney. The sooner you call a lawyer, the better. This is because a lawyer can inform you of your rights and next steps in the given situation. They can help you navigate the process and advise youof what to do and what not to do. Importantly, they can defend your freedom and fight tirelessly for the best possible outcome in your case.
Compile evidence while you can: When you call your attorney, they will probably advise you to gather evidence from the scene. You should take photos, videos, and write down any information that may be useful to your case. If there are witnesses, be sure to record their name, contact information, and any statements they can share regarding the reported crime. All of this information will be useful to your defense.
