What Are My Rights When I’m Arrested?

When you’re arrested you have a number of constitutional rights. Now, I don’t want to bore you on this quick video and go into a dense constitutional law lesson, but one of the most important thing is to remain silent.

Typically anything you say isn’t going to help you. If you’ve already been arrested, if they’ve already found drugs on you, if they already determined you’re going to jail there’s nothing you’re going to say that’s going to help you. In many situations people say terrible things, they make mistakes, they admit to things. So, you don’t really want to go there.

You want to be polite, you want to be courteous, the process is happening. The easier you are typically, the better it’s going to be. And certainly there are police officers and prison workers and jail officers that aren’t going to be very friendly; this is jail, it’s not a resort. So, you just want to be courteous as possible, follow directions, and hope someone is going to bail you out or call a lawyer as soon as possible.

    "I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
