What to Do after Your Arrest

After providing your name and address, it is advisable to remain silent and not carry on a conversation with police officers. Law enforcement officers could employ a number of different tactics to secure an admission of guilt from you or any other information that may sound or seem self-incriminating. They may attempt to engage you in casual conversation about your case or persuade you to cooperate with the investigation. It is important to not take the bait. Once you have been read your rights, everything you say can and will be used against you. Beyond requesting to speak with your lawyer, it is not in your best interest to say anything at all.

Questions for Your Attorney

When you meet with your Naples defense attorney, it is important that you are open and honest about your situation. Your lawyer will need to be well informed in order to build a solid defense. Once your defense attorney understands the specifics of your case, he or she will be able to answer your questions. Ask about the consequences you face, how long your trial may take and if there are alternative sentencing options available. Every case is different and there may be different legal options available depending on your criminal history and the circumstances of your case. In general, individuals who have a clean record and who have been accused of committing a nonviolent crime will have a greater chance of avoiding jail time.
