Seek help as soon as you are arrested
Mistakes made early in the process, well intended or not, can destroy your opportunity for an acquittal. Statements and actions made at or around the time of arrest can inadvertently implicate you or a loved one. The State will use every tool they have to prosecute someone they suspect of wrongdoing, and don’t think the State will not go after someone just to pressure them to cooperate.
The criminal justice system was not built to assist the accused. It was built to assist law enforcement in their duties and to protect the Government and the People.
