SEEK DEFENSE COUNSEL IMMEDIATELY AFTER RELEASE FROM CUSTODY
The arresting officers often believe they need to arrest "somebody." In many instances, some or nearly all of the witnesses leave the scene, believing the situation to be taken care of. Your attorney will need to complete the investigation to clear your name. To do so, he or she will find and interview those witnesses, review witness statemnets, police reports, medical reports, and any videos that may have been taken. The sooner this process can start, the more likely the evidence will not be lost.
