What Happens After an Arrest?

Many parents are unsure of what to do once their child has been arrested. If you have never had any experience defending yourself or a loved one from criminal charges before, it is imperative that you talk to an attorney right away. Though they have good intentions, parents make many mistakes when their child is arrested that can hurt their case in the long run.

What you can do to protect your child:

  • Remind them of the right to remain silent. Though you may think cooperating with the police is for the best, anything your child says to them can be used against them in court. Make sure your child only discusses the details of the alleged crime with you and your attorney.
  • Prepare them for court appearances and have them dress in nice clothing. Judges are usually more sympathetic to juvenile defendants who seem to understand the seriousness of the situation.
  • Hire an attorney familiar with the juvenile court system. Juvenile court plays out very differently from adult court. Your lawyer needs to know how criminal charges impacts children and teenagers and what kinds of strategies are more effective in this circuit.

Like any criminal defendant, your child has rights that protect them from unfair treatment from law enforcement and prosecution. Our St. Petersburg juvenile crime dense lawyers can provide you with the trusted guidance and counsel your family needs during this stressful time. We care about what happens to our clients and aggressively fight for their futures.

We offer free consultations and are available to our clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call (727) 202-4858 today.
