Steps to Take Immediately After an Arrest

Following an arrest and criminal charge, it is important that you follow the steps below in order to protect yourself and give yourself the advantage that you need in your case. Following these steps can help ensure that your rights are fully protected. If you have been arrested, you need to remember to:

  • Be polite. Being courteous to law enforcement officers will get you a lot further than causing problems. An arrest is not the time to start fights or challenge allegations made against you.
  • Do not answer any questions. While it may seem like a good idea to answer questions law enforcement may have, it is not. Besides your name, date of birth, and address, you should avoid answering potentially incriminating questions.
  • Know your rights. You have constitutionally protected rights that South Shore Criminal Defense encourages you to exercise. You have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney.
  • Request to use a telephone. You have the right to request to use a telephone, and it is important that you use this opportunity to call South Shore Criminal Defense or a relative or friend who will help you post bail and get released from custody.
