I’ve been arrested. What should I do?
Being arrested is one of the most frightening and confusing moments in a person’s life, especially if it’s never happened before. Whether you have been arrested for a drug crime in Texas or a Federal Crime, law enforcement is trained to take advantage of that confusion to accomplish their primary goal: to gather as much evidence as possible. Therefore, it’s important that you exercise your Fifth Amendment right and remain silent. You also want to immediately ask to speak to a good criminal defense attorney.
