Falsely Accused? You Have Rights
Being arrested can be traumatic for anyone, especially if you are innocent. Unfortunately, innocent people are arrested every day. If you are falsely accused of a crime, protect yourself by hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Not every innocent person who is arrested has a claim for false arrest. Police officers and other members of law enforcement generally have immunity against lawsuits, even if the charges against you are eventually dropped.
However, if you were arrested by police acting without legal authority or without probable cause, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit for your physical and emotional injuries.
After you are arrested, contact a criminal defense attorney like those at The Edwards Law Firm as soon as possible. We can help resolve your case quickly, and minimize the harm to your reputation, your career, and your family.
What to Do after an Arrest
If you are arrested, take steps to protect your rights. Remember, the police and their investigators are not trying to help you, but are looking for evidence against you. Do not speak with the police before consulting an experienced criminal defense attorney.
If you are arrested and believe you have been wrongly accused, do not resist the officers attempts to detain you. Even if your charges are later dropped, resisting arrest is a crime in and of itself, and will harm your case. Be cooperative, but silent, and ask for an attorney before answering any questions.
Finally, avoid discussing your case with anyone but your attorney. Never talk about your case over the phone from jail, as all of your conversations are recorded and may be used against you. Dont speak about the circumstances leading to your arrest with your friends and family, as they may have to testify to what you said.
Most importantly, after you have been arrested, find an attorney you trust. While you do have the right to defend yourself, an experienced criminal defense attorney can ease your mind and make the criminal justice process run more smoothly and quickly.
