What Happens After an Arrest in California
Being arrested in California can be a traumatic experience, but it's essential to understand what happens next and how to navigate the legal system to protect your rights. Below, we discuss what you can expect after being arrested as well as tips concerning what you should do if you are arrested.
- Remember your rights. As a person who has been arrested, you have specific legal rights that law enforcement must respect. These include the right to remain silent, the right to legal counsel, and the right to refuse a search. It's crucial to understand these rights and exercise them to protect yourself from self-incrimination.
- Be respectful when interacting with law enforcement. If you are interacting with law enforcement, it's essential to remain calm and exercise your rights. Avoid incriminating yourself by refusing to answer questions or consenting to a search without a warrant.
- Consider how you will post bail. After an arrest, the judge will determine if bail is necessary, and if so, how much bail should be paid. Bail is an amount of money that acts as insurance to ensure that you show up in court. If you can't afford to pay bail, you can request a court-appointed attorney or reach out to a reputable defense attorney to assist you throughout the legal process.
- Contact Chambers Defense. If you are under investigation, facing criminal charges, or being placed under arrest, you should contact our Marin County attorney as soon as possible.
- Prepare for the legal process. Navigating the legal system can be daunting, but with the right defense attorney, you can increase your chances of a positive outcome. This process includes attending court appearances, negotiating plea deals, and defending yourself at trial if necessary.
