Knowing what to do before, during, and after an arrest can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. There are many reasons why a person may be arrested or taken into custody. You might be arrested if charges have already been filed against you, if you have been identified as being involved in some criminal activity, or have outstanding warrants due to failing to appear in court.
Even simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time can trigger an arrest.
It is important to know and exercise your rights. What happens at this stage of the proceeding can have a major effect on the outcome of the case. You need an experienced criminal defense lawyer involved immediately. It is important that you do not resist arrest or try to interfere in a criminal investigation, otherwise additional charges may be filed against you. You cannot win the fight on the street.
