Being arrested for the first time is quite a frightening experience. Most people think they can talk their way out of a ticket or explain their situation. DON’T. Everything you say will be held against you, and you are not smarter than the system nor the video recorder. Keep your mouth shut and just take the tickets. The process is fairly simple for everyone – Get arrested, get bailed out, get an attorney and go to court. Once you are arrested, law enforcement almost never tears up tickets, that’s for TV and movies. Instead, law enforcement is more than happy to write you a ticket for resisting arrest, or admitting something to them by not keeping your mouth shut. The only people you should talk to immediately are bail bondsmen. Get bailed out, but don’t talk about your case. Your attorney is the ONLY person you discuss your case with. Invest the time and money it takes for good, experienced legal representation to protect your liberty and rights. You have money, jail time, and your criminal record to consider for the rest of your life. That is definitely worth having a free consultation with a criminal defense attorney for. If you have questions or concerns, contact our office for a free, no obligation consultation with an experienced attorney to discuss your case and your options.
By now you should have seen somebody with a Go Pro mobile video camera recording something. They can also be very useful if they catch injury accidents. Bicyclists have been recording rides in case a car cuts them off and causes a crash. The same can be done in a car. With all this snow and ice, it’s a great idea to point a camera out the read window of your vehicle while driving in these conditions. Rear end crashes are most common in winter conditions. If recorded it could show what the other driver was doing and approximate their speed. All important things for your lawyer to use on your behalf!
