The moment you are arrested, the rest of your life hangs in the balance. It may seem impossible to believe, but the actions of a single day can have wide and varied consequences. You could lose your driver’s license, be placed on the sex offender registry, face assault charges, or be forced to serve time—and even if you suffer a minor penalty, you could still carry a criminal record that robs you of future opportunities.
The Police Are Hoping You Don’t Know Your Rights
No matter what charges you are facing, you are at a significant disadvantage if you don’t know your rights. From the police who arrested you to the prosecution team that is working hard to get a conviction, everyone on the opposing side has done this before. You may even be frightened enough to agree to the charges, hoping for leniency or a reduced sentence.
DO NOT do this—and definitely, DO NOT attempt to go through this alone!
You need an advocate—someone who will listen, ensure your rights are protected at all points of the criminal process, and create a customized defense strategy that will lead to an acquittal. You need someone who will give you an honest appraisal of your options, work toward your goals with determination, and ensure that your privacy is protected throughout the course of your case.
