What to Do If You Are Arrested in Spring Valley, NV
Being arrested is a stressful and frightening situation for most people. You should never try to talk your way out of an arrest. It is easy to say and do things that will make matters worse when dealing with the police.
You should always cooperate with police up to a point. Once you have been arrested or told you will be charged with a criminal offense, you should decline to answer further questions and ask to speak to an attorney. If you give the police a statement, your words may be used against you in court.
After you have been arrested, you should contact a lawyer as soon as you are allowed to do so. The sooner you have an attorney at your side, the less likely you are to say something that could cause additional problems for you.
If you have been accused of a minor offense, you may be issued a citation and told to appear in court. For other misdemeanors, you are likely to be arrested and taken into custody.
