The following are some of the more common questions that are asked by
individuals who have been arrested:
Q: I've been arrested, now what?
A: If you have been arrested then you have the constitutional right to
remain silent, you also have the right to
an attorney, it is vitally important that you utilize both of these rights. No matter
what evidence that police officers say that they have against you and
no matter what they say the outcome will be, it is crucial that you do
not admit to anything nor deny anything before speaking with your attorney.
Q: Will I go to jail if I am convicted of this crime?
A: This is a question that can only be answered specifically by your attorney;
each crime has different penalties for conviction. There are some crimes,
however, that may leave you eligible for
judicial diversion which will allow you to skip any jail time and go straight to probation.
A representative from our firm will be able to help you with an answer
to this question as well.
Q: Will the judge go easier on me if I confess?
A: This may be the case in some situations; however it is vitally important
that you consult with your attorney before confessing or denying any actions.
A representative from our firm may be able to have your sentence reduced
in exchange for a guilty plea, or we may be able to obtain a better deal
than this, it is important for you to speak with us before moving forward
in your case.
Q: Can a police officer lie to me?
A: It is a sad truth, but the answer is yes. A police officer can lie
to you or threaten you in order to obtain a confession or any other information
from you in order to incriminate you or to gather evidence that supports
their claim or arrest. You have the right to remain silent; it is highly
advisable that you employ this right until you can speak with a representative
from our firm.
