What to do After an Arrest

Do Not Hesitate to Call Our Kansas City Criminal Defense Lawyers

When you’ve been arrested, we know that you have questions and concerns. From worrying about your future to the impact this might have on your family, it is important that you get the answers you need.

Know that you have rights guaranteed to you by the United States Constitution. These can greatly help your case after an arrest. Let us explain your legal options. Call Rokusek Stein Law, LLC today at 913.583.0465.

Your Miranda Rights

Known as your Miranda Rights, these simple rules can greatly protect you and your case after a criminal arrest.

These rights include:

  • The right to remain silent
  • The right for the prosecution to use anything you say in court
  • The right to hire an attorney and have them present during questioning
  • The right to exercise your rights and not make any statements

Speaking to an attorney immediately after an arrest, before you speak to law enforcement, can greatly increase your chances to get lesser charges or have your case dismissed entirely, if possible. From the moment you are picked up by the police we can start building a case for you based on your specific circumstances.

Tips on Navigating an Arrest

In the heat of an arrest, many individuals make mistakes that can make it difficult to reduce their charges down the road. Although it's natural to feel worried, frustrated, or even angry when you are detained by law enforcement, it's important to keep your cool and get through the experience with as little harm done as possible.

Keep these things in mind if you are going to be arrested:

  • Be respectful and calm: Don't inflame the situation with your words or actions. This could only add to your charges down the road.
  • Comply with law enforcement, but not too much: Give your basic information to police, but do not try to convince them that you are innocent or tell them your side of the story. Your words could be twisted and used against you.
  • Call an attorney as soon as possible: A lawyer will be able to help you navigate your situation and provide you with the counsel and guidance you need. An attorney will also make sure that your rights were not violated at any point during the arrest.
