WHAT TO EXPECT IF ARRESTED IN TEXAS

Standard

The U.S. economy is struggling. Protests and civil disobedience are becoming more common. With this there is a rise in arrests and criminal proceedings. If you are expecting to be arrested, you should carry to forms of identification and the contact information for your attorney. This will allow them to identify you and will make to process run smoother. Leave the rest of your personal items (i.e. jewelry, money, etc.) at home. It is likely that you will be handcuffed; allow the police to do their job without resistance. Provide your name and address if asked, but no other information. Many people try to explain to the arresting officer their side of the story. Do not do this. The officer is doing his job and it is very unlikely that any information given to them will make them change their position. Once at the jail, you will be placed in a holding cell. Remain calm and quiet while in the cell. The booking process generally takes from 4-6 hours. However, it could take longer if it is busy. When you are allowed to make phone calls or have visitors do not talk about the facts of your case. Always assume that your conversations are being recorded. Only talk when your attorney tells you to. Wait for your arraignment. Daniel L. Morris, The Morris Firm, (214)357-1782, info@themorrisfirm.net
