Charges such as assault, drug offenses, theft, or any other crime, come with severe consequences. The Law Office of Ann Thayer wants to help you better understand your rights.
Right to Remain Silent
Many people are aware that they have the right to remain silent when arrested. However, not everyone knows that anything you say can be used against you at a hearing or trial. Even if the police are nice to you or tell you they just want to help, consult a lawyer before talking.
Right to an Attorney
One of the most important rights you have once arrested is your right to obtain counsel on your behalf. Regardless of what you are being charged with, it is always a good decision to let an attorney look out for your best interests. The Sixth Amendment also states that you have the right to a public trial and an impartial jury. Talk to an attorney after you arrested to get the assistance you need.
