If you are arrested for a criminal offense, there are two things to remember. The first and most important thing is that you have an absolute right to remain silent. You are not obligated to give information to investigators, and doing so can only make matters worse in most situations. The second thing to remember is that you have a right to obtain the services of an attorney during all phases of criminal prosecution. Indeed, one of the biggest mistake made by people accused of a crime is to give information to investigators without the advice of counsel. Early consultation with an attorney is imperative to a successful defense of any criminal charge.
