Innocent until proven guilty. This is a phrase that is repeated throughout every legal drama in theaters and TV, and it is a concept that is a fundamental U.S. right. Similarly, the right to an attorney to ensure the process of determining guilt is fair is also a fundamental U.S. right. Both of these rights apply, regardless of the crime alleged, no matter how egregious. Accordingly, it is every person’s right in the U.S. to have a criminal defense.
After an arrest
Once the interaction with police begins, be polite, and hand over requested identification. Otherwise, remain silent. Remember, one does not have to participate in an investigation or speak to the police. They cannot compel one to speak. Simply one is under arrest, if not, ask to leave. If they refuse, ask for an attorney. Then, once an arrest occurs, call an attorney.
