If you are put in a situation where you are arrested, read the information found here or you can read some vital information below.
Stay away from trouble
This is a no-brainer. To avoid arrest by the authorities, stay away from trouble and of people who can possibly take you to sticky situations. However, there are circumstances that even if you have not done anything wrong, you might still get arrested. Some of these circumstances include being at the crime scene where everyone has to be arrested first to be investigated and shed light on the matter or you happen to be near within a violent demonstration. This does not mean you are guilty of anything but being at the wrong place and at the wrong time could lead you to an arrest. But if you are not guilty of anything, there is no reason for you to be afraid of or panic.
Know your rights
If you know your rights, you would know exactly what to do during such situations. One of the things that should happen if you are being arrested is the pronouncement of Miranda rights. Without the pronouncement of Miranda rights, the arrest is faulty and you can bring that up as a technical issue before or during the trial. Another right that you should be aware of is your right to remain silent during arrest. You cannot be forced to say incriminating things while being arrested or held. Other important information that you should know are found here.
Do not resist arrest
One important thing to remember during an arrest is never to resist it as it can lead to bigger problems with the law and it can also hurt you or the arresting officers. Just go along with the authorities and just prove your innocence later.
Call a criminal lawyer
When you are already at the police station, ask if you can do a telephone call to your lawyer. If you do not have a lawyer yet, there are a lot of information found here on how a criminal lawyer can assist you during the process.
