What Should I Do If I’ve Been Arrested?

1. Don’t Talk to the Police!

It’s crucial to know that while you should remain respectful with authorities, you have the right to remain silent. This a right protected by the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which makes it clear individuals are protected from being compelled to be a witness against him / herself in criminal matters.

It’s important to note that:

  • Talking will not help you avoid an arrest. If law enforcement has probable cause to arrest you, then they will arrest you.
  • By speaking, you risk making a confession or providing information that can be used to indict you, even unknowingly.
  • Even if you feel that information being discussed is “harmless,” it is still in your best interest to invoke your Fifth Amendment right.

2. Ask for a Lawyer!

As soon as you can you should elect your right to have a defense attorney present. A criminal defense lawyer or public defender can ensure the police do not violate your rights and help you avoid saying anything incriminating during questioning. Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so that we can be by your side whenever you need us. Call now!
