Bryan, Texas DWI Lawyer
After Arrest, What Happens Next?
DWI charges are serious business. If you are ever arrested, you must take
the steps to protect yourself and your future from being tarnished. There
are several ways to go about this and deliver a solid defense on your
behalf. However, as soon as you are arrested, you must quickly protect
yourself from having to face severe criminal penalties and other consequences
in the future.
How You Can Protect Yourself After an Arrest
Law enforcement officials are quick to judge anyone whom they believe may
be driving under the influence. They stop at nothing and look for even
the smallest indication of drunk driving. Not only will law enforcement
be persistent, expect that prosecutors will be similar. Prosecutors are
ruthless; they take every detail and every shred of evidence to secure
Always remember these tips:
- You have the right to remain silent—The Miranda Rights allow you
to stay quiet, as whatever you say can later be used against you by prosecutors.
- Schedule a hearing to retain your driving privileges.
- Retain legal representation as soon as possible.
Just because you are arrested does not automatically equate to guilt. You
have the opportunity to fight your charges and obtain defense.
