This can be one of the most stressful times in your life. Yes, you are innocent until proven guilty in a broad sense, but that is often not the approach of the police.
IF YOU ARE ARRESTED
- Do not resist arrest.
- State that you wish to remain silent and ask for a lawyer. You have a right to a free lawyer if you cannot afford one.
- State that you wish to cooperate but only with your lawyer present. Do not say or sign anything without a lawyer.
