Common Questions About Criminal Charges in Lancaster
Our highly-trained and experienced criminal defense lawyers can answer your questions, including:
What do you do if you’ve been arrested?
If you are arrested for a criminal charge, your primary concern should be protecting yourself. You can do this by:
- Getting help. You can contact a lawyer as soon as possible. A legal professional can help protect you in the interrogation room and can provide you with immediate advice.
- Keeping quiet. It is usually a very good idea to avoid talking to the police before you have legal counsel. Anything you say can be used against you. Wait for your legal representation to arrive to ensure your rights are respected.
- Cooperating. Fighting a law enforcement officer or attempting to outsmart them can lead to serious problems with your case. Follow the requests of the police as politely as you can.
Is talking to the police that bad?
Once you have been charged with a crime, the primary goal of the police will be to secure a conviction. Talking to the police can help them reach that goal more quickly. Law officers can try to convince you to take an unfair deal or to confess to something you shouldn’t. Get help protecting your rights and your future before speaking with anyone.
What will happen if you are convicted?
The court system in Lancaster determines penalties based on the crime you are charged with and your unique circumstances. Depending on the severity of the charge, you could face large fines and time in jail or prison. You could also be forced to deal with probation.
Can you just take a plea bargain?
Prosecutors can make a plea bargain sound like the best way out of your situation but remember that these deals require you to plead guilty. They lead to a permanent mark on your record and you will still face some kind of penalty. Make sure that you’re getting a fair deal before agreeing to any bargain.
