The United States provides its citizens many rights which are protected by the courts. If you are arrested and charged with a criminal offense, make sure to document exactly what occurred prior to the arrest, make notes of all statements or comments made to you by any law enforcement officials and/or any comments you make to the police.
If possible, obtain a copy of the arresting police report. Your attorney should be given all this information to assist with your criminal case. Criminal defense lawyers understand your rights and work to ensure that citizens charged with criminal offenses are treated fairly. Always consult with an experienced Murfreesboro attorney before you speak with the police or make an appearance in court.
