If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, it is so important that you reach out right away to an experienced criminal defense attorney that regularly practices where you are facing the charges. This attorney should be familiar with the typical practices of law enforcement in that jurisdiction so they can give you an accurate evaluation of whether they have violated your constitutional rights.
Anyone who has ever watched a crime show or movie, has heard the cops say “you have the right to remain silent, you have the right to an attorney”…and so on. But when do those rights kick in when you are facing a real-life criminal prosecution? This is an important question for an experienced criminal defense attorney. You do have these rights, but as with most things, Hollywood has over-exaggerated when they come into play and how they are supposed to be used. Miranda Rights are pretty fundamental but when they must be given to you by law enforcement and how is something that must be discussed with an attorney.
If you have been arrested for a crime in Colorado Springs, and you think they should have read you “your rights” and didn’t, contact Maher & Maher Law immediately. We can review the body worn camera in your case and get a much better idea of whether a constitutional violation has occurred. If they did violate your rights, you need an attorney to point that out – most likely in a written motion to the court – and to make sure that the proper remedy is given to you – that could take the form of excluding witness testimony, excluding statements you made against your own interest, or in rare cases dismissal of the charges against you. We can help you get the outcome you deserve. Call us today at 719-301-7500 for a free one-hour consultation on your case.
