What Do I Do If I'm Arrested?

This is one of the most often asked question on my blog as well as elsewhere on the internet. The simple answer is "LAWYER UP!" Contact a lawyer as soon as possible and retain counsel in order to protect your rights. Once you demand an attorney and refuse to talk, the police are no longer allowed to ask you questions. Remember: any thing that you say can and will be used against you in court. The most often used technique for crime solving is to gain an admission from the Defendant. Often people accused think that the police will treat them worse if they hire an attorney or are not cooperative. They also believe when the police say "it will be better if you just admit." While the police often do tell the judge that the Defendant was cooperative, they still charged the crime and the accused must face the consequences. Often, without the confession the prosecution cannot make the case and the charges are dismissed. Think about which you would rather have occur. The police know that the chance of a confession falls to almost zero once the accused hires an attorney. The police can, and do, often ask questions to trick the accused into making admissions. Even relatively innocuous statements can prove fatal to a case if they are later proven to be false. Often a jury will not believe anything that a Defendant has to say if they find out that he lied at any point in the investigation. The Fifth Amendment gives you the right to remain silent. It cannot be used against you if you assert this right. Use it! You have the right to an attorney. The fact you ask for counsel cannot be used against you. If you are unsure of your rights or if you have been charged with a crime in Cincinnati, Newport, Covington or Florence, contact Michael Bouldin to discuss representation.
