5 Things to Do If You Are Wrongfully Accused of a Crime

There’s few things in the world worse than being accused of a crime. Unfortunately, it happens far too often. Even in our technologically advanced world, people are still wrongfully imprisoned for crimes they did not come. If you find yourself in such a situation, here’s a list of things you should do. Anything you say, can be used against you. It’s best not to say anything at all when you’re arrested. Anything you say can be used against you. If you’re not careful, you might say something that hurts your case later. Do not disobey the police officer, and blatantly disregard his/her authority. But, by the same token, don’t feel the need to say “extra things,” that are irrelevant, such as admitting guilt. Get a respectable lawyer immediately. This is one of the very first things that you should do. In fact, you should do this before speaking to any authorities. After you are read your rights, you need to request an attorney right away. Choose one wisely. This person may be the only person who will be able to help you get out of this scary situation quickly, so it is better to hire one or accept one as soon as possible. Speak to the lawyer about what has happened and follow his or her advice as closely as possible. This is a person who will know how the court system works and how you and the legal team should proceed. If he or she does not seem like he or she is interested or wants to listen to you, then you should find someone else right away. Secure any evidence quickly. Tell your legal team about any evidence that can be used to point the authorities to the person who committed the crime if you know. If there is any evidence that supports your alibi, then you must tell your legal team right away. Anything you can think of, even if it seems insignificant, could be the key that will let you out of the grip and sight of the authorities. Think of any witnesses relevant to the situation. Is there anyone that saw you who can verify your alibi or support the fact that you did not commit a crime? Even if you do not know a person’s name, you should give a good description of your encounter with someone else when you were where you say you were. The person may be able to be tracked down to verify your story. Any details that you can remember about a person can be helpful. In addition to his or her appearance, think about the type of vehicle the person was driving, who the person may have been with, or where you have encountered the person before. Write down everything you know about the person as soon as you can so you do not forget. Do not talk to your accusers, if possible. These are people who want you to be punished for a crime that you did not commit. You do not want to tell them something that they will try to turn around on you and make you look guilty. The best thing to do is stay away from the people that have accused you of a crime. If those people are the authorities, remember your rights. Cooperate as much as possible, but do not be afraid to have a legal team present to support you.  ]]>
