Top FAQ’s About Criminal Cases
Answered by successful criminal defense lawyers in California.
You’ve been arrested. Now what?
After you’ve been arrested, you need to focus on protecting yourself before anything else. You can take a few simple steps to accomplish this:
- If the police request you take some kind of test, listen to them. Try to be polite while being processed or moved.
- Stay quiet. You don’t need to talk to or answer the police. You can ask for a lawyer and then wait until you have a legal professional on your side.
- Call a Long Beach criminal defense lawyer. The sooner you call for legal help you can start getting the protection and advice you need to successfully handle your case.
How do you help a loved one who has been arrested?
Your best bet if a loved one is arrested may be getting legal assistance. Our attorneys can help you get in contact with your loved one and find out what’s going on. We can help you with bail money and we may be able to get them released from jail.
Why should you avoid talking with the police?
Talking to the police may seem like a good idea after you’ve been arrested, but you have to remember that they’re trying to secure a conviction against you. Anything you say could be turned against you. By staying quiet, you prevent the police from gathering ammunition they can later use to hurt your case.
Even if the police tell you that they know you are guilty, you should stay quiet. They could be lying to you or otherwise trying to trick you. Your best bet is still getting a criminal defense lawyer for the legal aid you need.
Should you take a deal for pleading guilty?
Plea deals may be offered by prosecutors in an attempt to finish a case quickly. These deals usually aren’t going to work in your favor, though sometimes they do. You can use professional legal advice to determine if the deal you are offered is worth it to you.
If you get convicted, what happens to you?
The penalties for a conviction vary based on the charges and your situation. You might face fines or time in jail or prison. Generally, the amount of prison time or the severity of the fine will depend on what type of crime you are charged with. We can keep you informed about the charges you’re likely to face and how you can deal with them.
Why can’t you just use a free public defender?
Some individuals may be eligible to receive aid from a public defender. Unfortunately, these lawyers are usually burdened with a lot of cases. They typically do not have enough time to focus solely on your case, which can limit your defense. Hiring a private practice criminal defense attorney on your own can strengthen your odds in court.
