Getting arrested or charged with a criminal offense is a scary experience. Whether you saw it coming or it was a complete surprise, in the blink of an eye your life has just taken a drastic turn. Now, you’re sitting in a police car. You’re handcuffed. You’re being questioned by a detective… Hard. You’re saying to yourself the whole time, “I can’t believe this is happening!” The experience of being charge with a crime is extremely upsetting, and can be overwhelming. When it actually happens to you, and you’re confronted with the reality of the situation (and the possible consequences), it can feel like your world is being turned upside down. You’re left feeling confused and scared. Most of all, you just want to know what’s going to happen next.
You have some important questions. Will I have to pay fines? Will my name be in the paper? Will the neighbors know? Will I have a criminal record? Will I go to jail? Is this going to ruin my life? The big question you are asking yourself is, what you should do next. You may be wondering if a criminal defense attorney can really help you, if you should hire one, or if you can even afford one. This is when you are most vulnerable. You may be feeling desperate, and hopeless, and trying to figure out how to get yourself out of the situation. It is about now that you are thinking that if you just cooperate with the police, they’ll let you go, and this will all be over. You’re wondering if you should make a statement as they’ve requested, or give them consent to search your car… or your home. They read you something from a piece of paper and asked you to sign it, but did you really know what all that meant?
