Keegan Lawyers Will Help You Understand Your Rights
Defend Yourself from a Wrongful Conviction
Oftentimes a person will feel hopeless after being arrested for a drug crime. In other situations, they may be intimidated by a police officer trying to force a confession. Cases like this can make it difficult for a person to take proper legal action after an arrest and start building their defense. If you have been charged with a drug crime of any kind, such as possession of a controlled substance or trafficking of illegal drugs, then you must make sure that you understand your rights and act upon them.
What are my rights?
First of all, everyone has the right to remain silent after an arrest. The moment you say anything about the events surrounding your arrest, your opinions regarding these events, or anything else, you may place yourself at a disadvantage. Should the wrong person hear you, they could misconstrue your words and use them as to your detriment in court. The only person you should speak to about your case is your attorney, who is bound by contract to keep your information completely confidential. You also be sure to tell your lawyer every little detail that you know about your case so that they have as much information as possible to build your defense.
Anyone arrested for a crime also has the right to an attorney. Unless you hire capable and experienced representation, you have next to no chance of having your charges dropped in court. Only an attorney with a detailed knowledge of drug crime laws and procedures can build and present a strong defense case and win the best possible results.
