PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS WHEN YOU ARE CHARGED WITH A CRIME

      
When your arrested or charged with a crime,  you should never give up your right to remain silent
and insist on your right to consult with a lawyer.  You should be respectful,  courteous and
cooperative to the police, but that does not mean testifying against yourself.  The right to remain
silent is a very valuable and sacred right protected by the United States and Texas Constitutions.  
Don't give it up. You don't have to prove the case against you. Conviction of many crimes can end
jobs and career prospects, cause you to lose your freedom, your drivers licenses, your right to own a
firearm and even your right to vote, along with social stigma, that may last a lifetime.  If your
convicted of certain sex crimes, you may have to register as a sex offender with the authorities where
you reside for the rest of your life, and have your picture posted on the internet as a sex offender.  
Sometimes, if certain procedures were not followed in obtaining the evidence against you, the  
evidence against you can be totally suppressed, and the charges will have to be dismissed, if a motion
is properly and timely presented.  Other times you may just not be guilty even though you were
charged.  Sometimes a witness against you may lie. Still other times you may have a justification
defense, such as self-defense or defense of a third party, which may make an assault defensible
because of a justification defense. Sometimes assault may be defensible because it was the result of a
public duty, such as a police officer making an arrest or a prision guard assaulting a prisioner
attempting to escape It is imperative that you obtain a skilled lawyer soon after your arrest to protect
your rights.    The constitutions gurantee the right to counsel in serious criminal proceedings because
of the potential loss of freedom and even life in certain cases.  Don't give up the right to a lawyer
either.
