If Charged What to Do

If you are charged with and arrested for an offense against public order, which includes inciting a riot, unlawful assemble, and disorderly conduct, it is important that you cooperate with law enforcement officials. It is also imperative that you protect your rights. In order to do so, it is best to secure legal representation as soon as possible and prior to answering any questions posed to you by law enforcement.

Your Rights

Everyone in the United States has a right to due process if they are arrested. Due process involves many things, including the right to a fair and speedy trial. In essence, due process, which is found in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, acknowledges that anyone who is arrested, charged with a crime, and goes to trial will be given a fair hearing in every way.

When you arrested, you have specific rights. These include the right to remain silent, to have legal counsel available to you, and to have your lawyer present when being questioned by law enforcement. These rights are known as your Miranda rights. They are connected to the Fifth Amendment, which precludes someone testifying against him/herself, and the Sixth Amendment, which gives us the right to legal representation when we are arrested.
