What Should You Do If You Are Arrested In Missouri?

If you have been arrested in Missouri, it is crucial that you cooperate with law enforcement and other officials throughout the process of your arrest and that you do not resist. By law, you may have to show proof of your identity. Assuming they have a search warrant or probable cause, law officers have the right to search you or your property.

However, cooperating does not mean that you should explain the situation from your perspective or answer their queries about the events leading to your arrest. Your answers to their questions could be used as evidence against you and put you in a worse position.

It is always better to wait for a professional criminal defense lawyer to represent you. Keep in mind that you should inform law enforcement that you have chosen to remain silent until you receive legal counsel.

After an arrest, you may be taken to jail for holding, and you may be required to complete fingerprinting and be searched. You will be allowed two phone calls, and as soon as possible, you should reach out to a criminal defense lawyer.

Working with Jimerson Law Firm means you have access to information, resources, and support through our firm. Our criminal defense lawyers will walk you through the process of what will happen after your arrest and help you understand your options. We will put our decades of experience to work for you, and together we will find the best solution to your legal dilemma.
