It is essential to the success of your case that you understand some of the various things you should do, and some that you should not.
What To Do If Charged With A Crime
First, do not give any information regarding your case to officers or other officials before consulting with an attorney. According to the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, you have the right to remain silent, because any information that you give out could be used against you at a later time.
Second, you need to retain skilled representation in your case as soon as possible. Without representation, your case could greatly suffer in court, and you could make the mistake of giving out unnecessary information that is misinterpreted or misused to pursue a criminal conviction.
