South Jersey Criminal Defense Lawyers: Know your rights! What to remember should you get arrested
If a law enforcement officer arrest you – abide by these four rules:
- If the officer should ask, tell him or her your name, but nothing else.
- Listen for the constitutional rights that the officer is required to recite to you
- Upon the completion of those rights say nothing except ‘I’d like to see a lawyer”
- Repeat this request to every officer who attempts to ask you questions.
