Your First Steps After Arrest
Many people do not know what happens after an arrest or when they should call a lawyer. The best time to call a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney is as soon as possible after your arrest. Here’s why.
The Criminal Complaint
The first major step after arrest is for the state to decide whether or not to file a criminal complaint. The officers will decide whether they have enough evidence to make a case. If they do, they will forward that information on to the District Attorney (DA). It is the DA that decides whether or not to file the complaint.
If you can contact a Los Angeles criminal lawyer before this point, they can talk with the people involved to try and convince them that they don’t have enough evidence to move forward, along with several other legal strategies.
It’s important to note that if you are held in custody, the DA must make a decision within 48 hours. However, if you know you’re under investigation then they have the right to make a decision for up to one year in misdemeanor cases and for longer periods based on what they are investigating you for.
Depending on your alleged charges, you may be let go and ordered to appear in court later. You may also have to pay bail to get let out, or in some cases held until your arraignment. The first thing you should do when you get released from jail is to contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney and build a strategy for your defense.
Facing Arraignment with a Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney
If the DA moves forward, an arraignment will be scheduled and you will be notified. The arraignment is when your charges are read to you and you are asked to make a plea. It is crucial that you have a Los Angeles criminal lawyer before this point to advise you on what to do at this critical point.
