Been Arrested? Know Your Rights! With Halley, No Concern is Too Small

Been Arrested? Know Your Rights?

HJP Legal Can Help

Even in the case of an arrest for a crime, individuals have rights that should be upheld by law enforcement officials.  These rights are designed to safeguard alleged offenders from unjust treatment and wrongful charges in the event that the accusations against them are proven to be false.

If you face any type of criminal charges, it is vital to always be aware of your rights and take steps to protect them.

One crucial right you have when being arrested is the right to remain silent. While it may seem obvious, it is vital to understand the significance of being cautious with your words after an arrest. Anything you say can potentially be misinterpreted and used against you by the prosecution.

This fundamental right should be read to you at the time of your arrest through the widely known Miranda Rights Warning. If your arresting officer failed to properly inform you of your rights, it could potentially be a viable defense strategy.

Additionally, the officer may try to persuade or intimidate you into making a statement – it’s important to resist this pressure. Remember, you do have the right to remain silent, and it’s crucial to exercise that right until you have obtained the assistance of a criminal defense attorney.

Therefore, it’s crucial to exercise your second right: the right to an attorney. With the guidance and representation of an experienced criminal defense lawyer who is well-versed in California and/or Florida law, they can handle all communication on your behalf and ensure that nothing you say inadvertently incriminates you.
