What Happens After an Arrest?

Following an arrest, but before you police charge you with a crime, the police create a report and send this report to a prosecutor who is tasked with choosing one of the following:

  • Filing a complaint and setting charges
  • Presenting evidence from the police report to the Grand Jury to inquire if/what criminal charges should be brought
  • Decide not to press charges

This the process is usually completed within 72 hours after your arrest which is why it is imperative you act quickly to retain skilled defense counsel after an arrest.

Should I Talk to the Police?

When faced with criminal allegations, it is against your best interests to sign any paperwork or make a statement without the legal guidance of your Stuart criminal defense attorney. Often, police investigate suspects without arresting them and instead request they give a statement at the station. If this has happened to you, hire an attorney to mediate on your behalf. Our accomplished criminal defense lawyers can speak to the police and request information that could prevent charges against you from being filed.
