Getting arrested is stressful, and it's easy to say things to law enforcement officers that you might regret later.

If you've been arrested, it's important to remember that:

  1. Saying the wrong thing can lead to false accusations-don't let something you say in the heat of the moment make the situation worse.
  2. You have the right to remain silent-you might feel tempted to challenge the arrest, but anything you say to law enforcement officers can be used against you in court.
  3. You should always ask to speak with a lawyer before saying anything else-your criminal defense attorney will help you determine if the arrest was lawful.
