What to Do After an Arrest

Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Anchorage Residents

If you have been arrested and charged with a criminal offense in the state of Alaska, then you may be experiencing a great deal of fear and anxiety regarding your future. You need to be sure that you have the right representation on your side, and that you can effectively fight the charges against you. It is important for you to understand what you need to do after an arrest, and you need to begin pursuing a favorable outcome immediately.

There are three major steps that you must follow if you are facing criminal charges:

Remain Silent

The first thing you must do after an arrest is to remain silent. It is absolutely critical that you do not talk about your case with anyone. This includes agents, law enforcement, cellmates, jail personnel, or court officials among others. Any information that you give out could be twisted and used against you to pursue a conviction of your charges.

Do not Consent to Any Searches

You will most likely be approached by police officers or other officials who wish to gather evidence. They may ask you to search your home, your vehicle, various containers, and other areas. It is vital that you do not consent to these until you have the opportunity to discuss your case with a defense representative.
