Getting arrested is a difficult situation. However, the situation could become even worse if you are not careful. Here are some of the mistakes to avoid after being arrested:
Talking about the charges: Use your right to remain silent. The police may lie to you in order to get you to confess, but your best option is to remain silent about what has happened once you are in custody. You are not guilty of anything until it has been proven in a court of law, so use that fact to your advantage.
Not hiring a lawyer: Even if your charges are minor, speaking with a lawyer is always the best course of action. A lawyer will advise you of your rights and the possible outcomes of a trial. He or she can also help you decide what your next steps should be.
Not appearing in court: You can get the help of a bail bond agent to help you post bail if you are unable to do so yourself. Once the bail bond agent posts your bail and you are released, it is important for you to appear in every court hearing. If you fail to appear, your friend or relative will be held financially responsible if they obtained the bail bond on your behalf. Not only that, failing to appear in court hearings may lead to another arrest, and this time you may not have the option of being bailed out.
