Being arrested on any type of criminal charge is frightening and can be very intimidating. Oftentimes, law enforcement officers are in a rush to arrest someone and bring charges against them which can result in your rights being violated. Regardless of whether the crime you are accused of committing is a felony or a misdemeanor, you need immediate, competent legal assistance.
The importance of a Clark County Criminal Defense Lawyer
It is important to know that just because someone has been arrested does not automatically mean they are guilty of a crime. Hiring a criminal defense attorney immediately can make a big difference in the outcome of the charges you are facing. Keep in mind, the longer it takes for you to hire an attorney, the greater the chance of losing evidence; evidence that can potentially prove your innocence.
Attorney Christopher Jones explains why statements can cause problems
One of the important things to remember when you are arrested is the officer must read you your Miranda rights. These rights protect you against self-incrimination. Unfortunately, too often people who are innocent of any wrongdoing say things out of fear or panic. The most innocent sounding comment can be used against you later, when you most need a solid defense.
It is never a good idea to give a law enforcement officer any type of statement before speaking with a criminal defense attorney. A skilled attorney can aid you in a number of ways including securing a bail hearing, helping your family identify a bail bond company and getting you released as quickly as possible pending trial.
