Madison County, OH

It's critical to remember that law enforcement officers and prosecutors are not on your side. They are trained to investigate, interrogate suspects, and "connect the dots" on how and why a crime occurred. However vital the criminal justice system may be, it is not perfect. You may be tempted to try and state your innocence.

Regardless of the circumstances of the arrest, this tactic may lead to self-incrimination and details that can be used against you in court. Use your right to speak with an attorney as soon after the initial arrest as you can.
