CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY IN LOUISIANA
The American justice system operates on the premise Innocent until proven guilty. But your rights can be waived or suspended in certain circumstances.
What Are Your Rights?
The Constitution of the United States and the Louisiana State Constitution echo each other in guaranteeing certain rights to a person who’s been arrested:
> To be “advised fully of the reason for his arrest or detention”
> To be silent and protect him/herself from self-incrimination
> To “the assistance of counsel”
The right of “assistance of counsel” should not be taken lightly. The criminal process can be very complicated. And, unfortunately, there is the possibility that your Constitutional rights can be violated if law enforcement agents or the prosecution does not follow proper protocol. So a criminal defense lawyer is crucial to protecting your rights and building your defense as soon as possible and prior to any questioning, statements, blood or urine or field sobriety tests.
