What To Do After You Have Been Accused Of A Crime?
Call An Attorney
The first thing that you need to do after being charged with a crime is assert your right to speak with an attorney. Do not discuss your case with anyone but your attorney. Many times officers will attempt to get you to confess to a crime without you even knowing it, sometimes they will even go as low as to put an undercover officer in your cell and use the information they collect against you.
Try and arrange bail as soon as possible. If you are arranging bail for a loved one, our Criminal and DUI law firm can assist with the process.
Recall What Happened
Immediately try and put together a mental list of what happened during your arrest. Many times this can be difficult but attempting to remember what took place will help your attorney and could be a determining factor in keeping you out of jail.
