Criminal Defense FAQ

We all rely on the police and other law enforcement officials to keep us safe and protect our rights. At the same time, getting stopped or arrested by the police can be confusing and frightening, especially if you do not know your rights. The police can often try to intimidate and coerce you into giving statements or acting counter to your Constitutional Rights. No matter what the reason is for your arrest, you do have rights that are granted by the United States Constitution that you should not be afraid to use. If you are arrested in Tulsa for DUI, drug possession, drug trafficking or theft, do not hesitate to contact our office at 888.655.2923. The Tulsa juvenile arrest attorneys at Garrett Law Center also have a wealth of experience protecting the rights of juveniles and minors who have been arrested for crimes.

Below is some basic but essential information the Tulsa criminal arrest attorneys at Garrett Law Center think everybody should know regarding their rights in the event they are arrested or approached by the police.

Right to Remain Silent

In the event you are arrested, you have the right to remain silent. If you wish to exercise that right, tell the police officer verbally. If you choose not to exercise your right to remain silent, anything you say to the arresting officer can and likely will be used against you.

Right to an Attorney

If you are arrested, you have the right to an attorney. Ask for one immediately. Do not give any further explanations or excuses. Also, do not make any decisions without the assistance of an attorney. Do not sign anything the police provide to you.

Consent to Search

The police officer may ask you for consent to search your person, your car or your home. You have the right to refuse the search.

Right to a Local Phone Call

If you use your local phone call to contact an attorney, the police cannot listen to your call.

Rights are for Everybody

Regardless of your immigration or citizenship status, you have constitutional rights. Do not discuss your immigration status with anybody except your lawyer. Also, if you are not actually under arrest, you have the right to calmly leave.

If you have been arrested, you should try your best to remain calm and composed in the situation. Even if you believe the arrest to be unfair or wrongful, do not try to resist arrest. Be polite to the officer as well. Do not interfere with or obstruct the police. Under no circumstance should you lie to the officer or give them false documents. Try to remember the details of the encounter.
