Denton Criminal Defense Lawyer
If You Are Arrested
Do not make the mistake of assuming you will never have to deal with arrest procedures as long as you avoid criminal activity. Anyone can be arrested on suspicion of criminal activity, and if you are not fully informed about your rights, you can end up in serious legal trouble. The good news is that if you are fully informed, you can make good decisions that will help you avoid complications.
The Denton criminal defense lawyers at Alexander & Associates can help you efficiently fight criminal accusations. To discuss your legal rights and options as a defendant, call our offices at 972-420-6560.
What to Do – and not Do – if You are Arrested
A police officer approaches you and informs you that you are under arrested. Many people find it difficult not to panic in this situation. However, you need to stay calm to avoid making mistakes that could incriminate you in a crime. Try to keep the following tips in mind:
- You do not have to answer any questions. The police or District Attorney may try to pressure you into giving information, but you do not have to. The only facts you need to provide are your name, address, and phone numbers for you and your immediate family.
- Ask for a Denton criminal defense attorney. You have the right to legal representation when you are being questioned or facing any legal prosecution. Speak with your attorney before you say anything besides your name, address, and phone number to the police.
- Do not resist, be rude to the police, or try to run. All of these behaviors will only make things more difficult for you, and may result in additional charges of resisting arrest. If you are mistreated during your arrest, ask for the arresting officers’ badge numbers so you can file a complaint at the proper time.
If you or a loved one has been charged with a criminal offense, you need an assertive and knowledgeable Denton criminal defense lawyer. Contact Alexander & Associates today at 972-420-6560.
