Right to Remain Silent
In the state of Georgia, after an arrest and upon interrogation, you have the right to remain silent. Often, the worst problem an individual encounters in criminal defense is fighting their own statements, admissions, and consents to search. Illegal substances are often located by law enforcement when a driver or resident hastily answers questions or provides an officer consent to search. These problems can be avoided when you know your rights, including the right to remain silent.
Right to an Attorney
Additionally, you have the right to an attorney. Under the Fifth Amendment, you have the right to a lawyer following your arrest. What is most important to know, is that once you request an attorney, law enforcement officers cannot continue to question you about your crime until your lawyer arrives and is present to assist you through the interrogation process. This also further emphasizes the need for you to contact an attorney immediately upon arrest for drug-related offenses and any other criminal charge.
