What to do when arrested for a violent crime
As a seasoned Annapolis violent crimes defense lawyer, I work hard for you in the courtroom, but I am seldom there when the arrest occurs. That’s why it’s so important for you to stay quiet when arrested for a violent crime. It only takes a moment to put your entire case in a coffin and nail it shut. Many people mistakenly think that asking for a lawyer makes them look guilty. In reality, asking for an attorney makes you look like someone who knows his or her rights and wants to put forth the best possible defense. The police can use coercive and forceful tactics to make you talk, but anything you say can be used against you at trial. Remember, it is not your job to make things easy for law enforcement. It is your job to protect your rights and keep quiet until your attorney is present.
