If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, whether a misdemeanor or felony, you know how life-changing it is. Depending on your specific circumstances, you may spend days in jail while you are trying to raise bail, which makes it difficult to find an attorney to represent you. Your job may be in jeopardy, your reputation suffers and, if you are a divorced parent, or in the process of getting a divorce, child custody and visitation may become issues.
If you are convicted, you risk spending years in prison, paying high fines and restitution. When you are released, you may find it difficult to get a job, rent a home or get a bank loan. With so much at stake, you need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney with a track record of success.
Call the Law Office of Wendi D. Armstrong
It is important that you do not talk to anyone about your case without an attorney present. The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides you the right not to say anything that may be later used against you. Law enforcement is known for acting like your friend, for posing as helpful to your case. Do not be fooled. Do not answer any questions and ask to have your attorney present.
Do not talk about your case to your friends or family. All could later be called as witnesses against you. Absolutely do not talk about your situation to a cell mate or any other prisoner. It is common for one inmate to claim another inmate confessed the crime. The self-proclaimed confidant will turn into the state’s prime witness against you.
