Probation Violations Can Send You Right Back to Prison

Several Fremont gang members were arrested while attending a funeral for a fellow gang member in November. They were arrested on various charges, all violating conditions of their probation including possession of side arms, semi-automatic weapons and controlled substances, and dressing in gang attire.

While the gang members were arrested in the past, they could very well have made damaging mistakes following their current arrests. It is important when you are arrested to cooperate fully with the police, while at the same time not offering incriminating information. Additional charges can be made against you if you resist arrest or offer the police information they do not already have.

It is best to be cooperative but remain silent. You should ask to speak with your attorney immediately following the arrest. Keep on demanding your right to speak to your attorney until he or she is able to arrive to represent you. If the police ask you questions, respond only by asking for your attorney and do not offer any additional information about the allegations against you.

It is important to remember that law enforcement officials are generally not interested in hearing anything you may say in your own defense. Your attorney, on the other hand, can speak up for you and draw attention to details of your arrest that may mitigate your charges or throw them into a different light. These efforts can be weakened if you are rude to police or provide details that do not help your case.

If you do not have an attorney, it is vital that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to help you with your defense to protect your rights following your arrest.
