WHAT HAPPENS AFTER AN ARREST?
Following an arrest, the police create a report and send this report to a prosecutor who is tasked with choosing one of the following:
- Filing formal charges against you
- Presenting evidence from the police report to the Grand Jury to inquire if/what criminal charges should be brought
- Decide not to press charges
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.
