Criminal and Traffic
You have been arrested.
Not all arrests are the same. In some arrests you are charged with a crime and taken into custody. In others you are not. You may receive a traffic citation, or a local ordinance citation, or a criminal citation.
Your response to each should be the same. Contact an attorney!
Your response to any type of an arrest, or receipt of a citation, should be to seek out information about how charges may affect you.
Critical and important evidence of your innocence may need to be quickly preserved. Key witnesses need to be identified and contacted. A theory of your defense needs to be developed. If you are placed in custody, steps can be taken to obtain your release to return to your home and work.
The specific path your case will follow depends upon whether you are charged with a felony, a misdemeanor, or a civil forfeiture. Serious penalties including prison, jail or probation can be imposed. Your innocence can be preserved. The impact of the charges can be minimized. However, this will not happen without seeking the assistance of an experienced attorney.
