Detroit Criminal Defense Attorney

Being accused of or arrested for an alleged crime can be overwhelming. In addition to being detained and having to face Michigan’s tough criminal justice system, one of the hardest parts of this experience is the uncertainty. What do you do? What will happen next?

What to Do When You’ve Been Arrested in Michigan

Whether you’ve already been arrested or charged with a crime, are under investigation, or have a warrant out for your arrest, remember that you can and should remain silent. Investigators and police are not on your side, and they will turn over their evidence to prosecutors. Every move you make is observed and likely recorded. Your actions and what you say can, and will likely, be used against you in court. 

This is also true for search and seizures. You should not allow anyone to search your vehicle or home without a search warrant or “probable cause.” When searches are conducted, they are literally looking for any evidence to use against you. If you refused a warrantless search and seizure of your property but one was nevertheless carried out, it could be a violation of your constitutional rights and you may be able to block the supposed evidence from being used against you in court. 

In addition to remaining silent and refusing warrantless searches, you should also call a criminal defense attorney at your first opportunity. An experienced lawyer, like Attorney Kevin Bessant, can advise you on how to interact with police and even represent you in examinations, interviews, bond hearings, and in trial (when possible).
