Pre Arrest Representation
In most cases, real life arrests do not happen as quickly as they do on TV shows and in movies. The criminal justice system can be difficult to navigate. Also, it can take a long time to go through the arrest and trial process. Additionally, the pre arrest process might be much longer than you may have anticipated. In many cases, you won’t get blindsided by an arrest. You will probably know that you are a person of interest in a case and can therefore plan accordingly.
A pre arrest is the time period before you are arrested when the police are investigating you. There is oftentimes a period before you are arrested where the police are gathering information about you. They try to establish evidence to prove that you committed a crime. Also, they discuss a crime with eyewitnesses. During this time, the police may try to contact and interrogate you. Before arrest, you do not have to cooperate with the police officers’ investigation. You do not have to answer any questions or volunteer any information about yourself. This is something that many people do not know, and as a result, they end up saying things that the police use against them later on. If contacted or harassed by the police, you should hire a defense attorney to advise you during this time period.
