Don't let nerves make you chatty following a Florida arrest

For many people, an arrest or criminal charge are things only seen, whether on the streets or on TV. These things don't happen to them -- until they do. Anyone can be charged with a crime in Orlando. Everyone needs to be careful about their actions following an arrest and/or charge in order to best protect their rights and freedom. 

While every specific criminal case has its own details and every different type of criminal charge its own potential outcomes, there are some basic, invaluable tips that every Florida suspect should follow. One golden piece of advice that the trained attorneys of Cruz & Bano, P.A. stress is this: "Don't say anything." 

Facing an arrest and criminal charge can cause extreme stress in even the most cool-headed person. The nerves can lead someone to talk and say things that can get them into trouble -- things that the person might not even mean or understand. It is wisest to save anything you have to say for your trusted criminal defense attorney.

Keeping quiet about your story includes doing so throughout the course of your criminal case. At the beginning, saying things to the police is risky. Talking to prosecutors during the trial process is also a bad idea, unless you are with and following the advice of your lawyer.

Even talking to friends and family about your case can be dangerous before your criminal process concludes. This risk includes sharing case-related posts on social media. Believe it or not, but cases are more regularly beginning to include evidence found on sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Your words and your story are valuable. Make sure, however, that the value or your words is being shared with someone whose priority is to defend your future. You want to save your words for someone who will use them for you -- not against you in a court of law.
