Whether you are being questioned, arrested or arraigned, you should always hire a criminal defense attorney any time you become the subject of an investigation. An attorney can protect your rights and even prevent a case from ever going to arraignment just be negotiating or getting evidence thrown out. Without an attorney, you could face harsher penalties or be charged with a crime you are not even guilty of committing.
Contact the attorneys at Farkas & Crowley now if you think you are a suspect in an investigation or the police have called to question you.
Yes, anything you say in the presence of law enforcement can be later used against you in court. That is why you should answer questions as short as possible and contact a criminal defense attorney to assist you with your case.
To search through someone’s personal property, the police must have reasonable cause—and they use that reasonable cause or evidence to request a warrant. So, if they do have a search warrant, you must oblige with their request.
If, however, they do not have a search warrant, and they request your permission, you do not have to give them permission to search your home, car or even your office.
Sometimes police will bring a suspect in for questioning, but not necessarily arrest them. Any time the police make you feel as though you do not have the right to leave their custody, then you are legally under arrest.
