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 a conviction.

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. Remember—you only have 15 days to take action! Our Bryan DWI lawyer at The Law Office of Shane Phelps, P.C. can help you every step of the way.
