“You can hear the sirens blaring. âGet on the ground now,â the cop screams. You’re forcibly shoved onto the ground or the hood of a car while your hands are cuffed behind you and then you are put into a car to be taken away to the police station. At the station, you are put into that little room where they try to talk to you, scare you, make you say something that will incriminate yourself. Even if you’re innocent, you could walk away guilty just because you didn’t keep your mouth shut when you should have. What you need is a lawyer. And here we have a list of Jackson, MS. federal criminal defense lawyers who will happily stand with you and help you get the fair trial you deserve.
Now, a little background. We are not recommending any of these attorneys and anything said in this article should not be construed as legal advice. We’re not lawyers, just people who believe in the constitution and who know that everyone has the right to quality counsel at one of the most stressful times in their lives.
Now when you’re arrested, several things are required to be done by law. First, you must have your rights read to you. If your rights have not been read to you, do not remind the officer. It is his or her responsibility to do it and if they don’t, that may be cause for a mistrial. Second, while you really do have the right to remain silent, the cops will do whatever they can to get you to tell them something. Most people in these situations feel compelled to talk and think that by talking they can prove their innocence. The best advice however is to just keep quiet and demand a lawyer. If you talk without your lawyer present, it’s your problem and the lawyer will not be able to help you later, so remember, keep it quiet until your lawyer arrives.
