Being arrested and charged with a crime brings with it great anxiety for many people, especially those who believe they have not done anything wrong or are accused of a serious offense. At The VanNoy Firm, we help those who have been charged with a crime in Dayton to not only successfully defend against those charges but also make sure that their constitutional rights are upheld throughout the process.
There are generally two types of arrests: an arrest following an investigation or arrest on the spot when the person arrested is suspected of having committed a crime.
Certain rights attach to an individual depending on whether they are in custody or not. If the police or law enforcement officers are investigating suspected criminal conduct and ask questions where a person is free to leave, that person is not under arrest, so these rights do not apply.
However, if the person is arrested, meaning they are not free to leave, then the law requires that the arrested person be read their Miranda Rights.
These rights are:
So, if you have been arrested, heed the first warning by just remaining silent. Tell officers you invoke these rights and do not say anything further to the police or interviewing officer.
If you have not been arrested, but suspect police may have reason to investigate and to be looking for you, it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal law defense attorney to advise you on the best way forward.
There are things an experienced criminal defense lawyer can do for you both before and after being arrested. If you retain the services of a lawyer before being arrested, and if there is an arrest warrant out against you, the lawyer can arrange for your surrender for booking to avoid being arrested and spending time in jail before being brought to a judge for arraignment.
If you have already been arrested, then it is even more imperative to retain an experienced criminal lawyer as soon as possible. There are some things a lawyer can do for you at the very onset of your case that may be too late if you take time to hire someone.
For example, the lawyer can try to convince the prosecutor to drop the charges – or at least to drop some of them or charge you with less serious crimes that would be easier to defend against. If the circumstances and facts warrant, then the lawyer can try to negotiate the best possible plea agreement. If there is no agreement to a good plea, then the lawyer will defend you at trial.
If you have been arrested or are facing criminal charges, contact our office today to discuss your case. We can help at any stage of the criminal process, and we are ready to protect your rights.
