When someone is arrested, especially for the first time, it is inevitable they will experience something unlike anything they have previously experienced. The prospect of going to jail even for a day is a haunting thought for anyone. This is why it is critical that the person arrested gets the best representation by a Dayton criminal charge attorney who is fully knowledgeable about Ohio criminal law and processes.
At VanNoy Firm, we have a dedicated criminal charge attorney ready to help you if you have been arrested and charged with a criminal offense.
If you have been arrested in Dayton or anywhere else in Ohio, you have certain constitutional rights that must be adhered to. Some of these rights include your right to remain silent. This means if you are under custody, that is, if you are not free to leave the presence of the officer arresting you, then you can refuse to answer any questions.
If you are not sure whether you are under custody, you can simply ask the arresting officer whether you are free to leave or not. If the officer says you are free to leave, then you can tell them that is exactly what you wish to do. If the officer says you are not free to leave, this means you are in custody and, therefore, these constitutional rights apply in your case.
In that case, keep silent and do not answer any questions other than basic informational questions such as your name and date of birth. Do not answer any other questions and especially any questions they ask about what you did or did not do.
The criminal process in Dayton includes several steps which follow one another in the following order:
