Getting arrested is a scary experience. If you are, you may be unsure of what steps you should take to keep yourself out of more trouble. We have put together a list of things to keep in mind if you do find yourself in trouble with the law.
You DO NOT want to escalate the situation. Police officers have a difficult job to do. They interact with hundreds of people every day. When arrested, do not make any trouble for them that may spark an unwanted result. You are not a lawyer and TikTok legal advice is rarely sound.
If the police start asking questions beyond basic personal information, you should stay quiet. An officer should have read you your Miranda Rights. This includes the first two sentences.
“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.” Trust them, they mean it. Do not give up any incriminating evidence by trying to talk yourself out of trouble.
Ask to Speak to a Lawyer
The third and fourth lines of the Miranda Rights pertain to your right to an attorney (lawyer). “You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.” Therefore, use the right afforded to you and ask for a lawyer. You are better to have someone well versed in the law than to be left defenseless.
