Criminal Defense Services in Mississippi
The Compassionate Legal Representation You Deserve
Being accused of a crime can be a terrifying experience, especially if you know that you have done nothing wrong. After an arrest, you will likely be overwhelmed and eager to return to normalcy as soon as possible. You may be encouraged to explain your alibi in detail or even take a plea deal moments after you are read your rights. Your mind will likely be flooded with questions about what to do, what to say, who to trust, and how you will you return home to your family.

- The severity and nature of the charges
- The available, indisputable facts

What To Do When You Are Arrested for a Crime in Mississippi
Should you be arrested for any type of crime, the most important thing you should attempt to do is remain calm. This can naturally be challenging if the arrest is unexpected or aggressive, but do your best to cooperate with law enforcement officers as they take you into custody. You should be read your rights, including your right to a lawyer. If you believe your rights are being in any way violated during the arrest – perhaps an officer is being violently forceful in handling you – make note of the possible violation, but try to avoid inciting additional hostilities. Mishandling of an arrest can potentially help your case later.
Once you are in custody, it is crucial that you do not speak to any officers who attempt to procure a statement or ask other questions about the crime. Ask for your lawyer. You have a right to a telephone call, which should either be to your legal representation if you already have it or to a trusted loved one who can summon it on your behalf. The sooner you get an attorney in the room with you, the better. Our lawyer can be reached 24/7 and can quickly mobilize to assist you or a loved one.
Remember: Anything you say can and will be used against you in court. It is not just a saying, and speaking without the presence of a lawyer can jeopardize your case. You may be tempted to defend yourself, and officers will try just about everything to coerce you into speaking. It is important to understand that, no matter what they say about their intentions, their goal is to secure a guilty plea, regardless of your innocence.
