Criminal Defense Attorney in Ventura County
We Are Passionate & Client-Focused
It’s important to hire an attorney right away if you have been arrested or are under investigation for a crime. When you are arrested, the police are required to read you your Miranda Rights, which are most commonly known for their first rule, “you have the right to remain silent.” In the chaos and frustration of an arrest, it can be easy to not hear or forget these right, but these are actually a critical component to what happens next for you.
The right to remain silent is one of the most important rights you have. Anything you say during or after an arrest can be used against you in court. Law enforcement is required to read you your rights, but that is all. The police may try to convince you to talk to them so you can “explain” the situation. Though you may think you’re explaining your side of the story, you could be incriminating yourself by providing law enforcement with circumstantial evidence that can be used against you. When you are arrested, it is of the utmost importance that you stay silent and contact an experienced lawyer right away.
