What should I do if I am arrested?

If the police arrest you, immediately say to them “I want to speak to a Lawyer”. This immediately puts an end to any type of interrogation and will protect you from saying anything that might incriminate yourself. Even if you are innocent and were in no way involved in the crime for which you have been arrested, ask for an attorney and do not speak to the police without a criminal defense attorney present. Here is s list of other things you should not do:

  • Do Not Consent to a Search
  • Don’t Answer Questions Without Your Attorney Present
  • Do Not Be Hostile; Do Not Physically Resist
  • Do Not start Informing on Others Without Your Attorney Present
