What Should I Do if I Get Arrested?

Getting arrested can be incredibly stressful, and it is often difficult to keep cool under pressure, especially when your freedom is being threatened. Below we have listed a simple list of what to do if you are arrested in Oklahoma. 

  1. Remain calm and do not resist arrest. This step is often times the hardest. It is important to remain calm and keep a level head. If you are being arrested without probably cause, that fight will be handled in the courtroom with an attorney on your side, not in the streets with a police officer.
  2. Ask for your attorney. Before questioning you, the officer musat read you your Miranda Rights. These rights state, among other things, that anything you say can and will be used against you. Sometimes the officer will ask you if you would like to waive you Miranda Rights. It is usually never a good idea to do so. If they ask you, firmly restate that you want to speak to an attorney.
  3. Retain the counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney, who will then guide you on which steps to take next. Each situation is different, but you will most likely want to call your family and post bail when possible.

The sooner you get in contact with a criminal defense attorney, the stronger your defense might be due to the availability of evidence. Your lawyer can also make sure your rights as a defendant are not being infringed upon, as it can be confusing to know what rights you are and are not entitled to when you have been accused of a crime. 

At Shoemake Law Firm, PLLC, Attorney Bransford H. Shoemake can assess the facts of your situation and build a strong defense against your charges. He will help you navigate the Oklahoma criminal justice system and argue for mitigated or even dismissed charges. Whether you are facing misdemeanor DUI charges or felony assault allegations, Attorney Shoemake will fight assertively for you in court.
