Being arrested is scary. It can be downright terrifying when you start to worry about what will happen to you if found guilty of whatever crime you’ve been accused of committing. Fortunately, you have some important legal rights that can help put your mind at ease. For example, you have the right to remain silent. This means you don’t have to say anything to law enforcement if you don’t know how to answer the question and don’t want your answers to be misconstrued in court.
As you’ll hear in this video, you also have the right to an attorney present during questioning. Your Denver criminal defense lawyer will make sure law enforcement and the prosecutors don’t take advantage of you and have you say something or admit to something that can hurt your case later. Even if you’re facing simple drug charges, make sure your drug defense attorney is present anytime to talk to law enforcement.
