What do I do if I am arrested?
You’re arrested! Call your lawyer and keep quiet! The first 24 hours are critical to your defence. Once you are able to retain and speak to your lawyer all the necessary information can be dealt with. But, until then be aware that:
- The right to silence is an absolutely essential right. Do not neglect it.
- You have a right to call YOUR lawyer and have a reasonable time to speak with that lawyer;
- You probably will only have one conversation with your criminal defence lawyer. The police only have to facilitate another call in certain circumstances. If you speak to duty counsel you probably will not be able to call your lawyer later that night;
- After you have spoken to your lawyer the police can still interview you. DO NOT TALK ABOUT ANYTHING. No one is interviewing you to prove your innocence. Even seemingly irrelevant banter can be misused against you.
