First Steps To Take If Charged With Murder

If you are unfamiliar with the criminal justice system and you’re charged with murder, this experience will be nothing short of frightening and overwhelming. Let our criminal defense attorney in San Antonio TX help you through this difficult and trying process.

Remember Your Rights

As the Miranda Rights state, “You have the right to remain silent.” The police must provide you with the Fifth Amendment, meaning you have the right to remain silent to avoid any incrimination against you while you’re in custody.  This right allows you to refuse to answer any questions that a law enforcement officer asks you until your lawyer arrives.

Stay Composed

Try to remain calm and polite while in custody and waiting. If you are panicked or too aggressive while being arrested, the authorities will match your tone. If you are composed while in custody—even if you feel your rights are violated—you may be able to avoid additional charges.

Contact Us Immediately

You must contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible as this is one of the more crucial steps in order to be able to defend yourself. Prosecutors put you at a disadvantage due to their extensive knowledge of legal technicalities and statutes, and may be able to get a false confession or plea bargain out of you. Our criminal defense attorney in San Antonio TX will help you avoid mistakes and make sure you understand and exercise your rights. Don’t go through this situation alone, contact us today for more information.
