The Wrong Thing to Do is Run and Hide


When an individual has committed a crime, there is a very strong possibility he or she will be arrested for that crime, regardless of whether he or she was caught in the act, or not. These days, security cameras, cell phones, witness statements, traffic cameras, ATM machines and all types of technological devices, not to mention evidence left at the scene of a crime, are capable of "catching" or locating an alleged suspect. Once law enforcement has feels they have probable cause, and sufficient evidence, to arrest a suspect, they will present their evidence to a judge and ask the judge to issue an arrest warrant.

If you or a loved one has had a warrant issued for your arrest, you can expect law enforcement to waste no time in executing the warrant and apprehending you. The wrong thing to do is to run and hide, or attempt to ignore the warrant and hope it will go away on its own. Considering the fact you may be at work, at home with your spouse and children, or in a very public location when officers finally track you down, it is in your interest to contact a skilled criminal defense lawyer at our firm right away. In cases where a warrant for your arrest has already been served, we advise you exercise your right to remain silent and refrain from answering any questions until your attorney is present. Although you may be encouraged to cooperate with law enforcement by answering their questions, doing so could lead to you unintentionally incriminating yourself.
