What To Do When Arrested In Las Vegas

Being arrested for a drug crime while visiting Las Vegas can be especially complicated. How you handle this situation greatly impacts the outcome of your drug case, including your ability to get home as soon as possible.

First, keep your mouth shut- Don’t Talk To Cops! It can be hard to resist explaining your side of the story, especially if you feel like you weren’t in the wrong. Resist this urge!

You are not obligated to tell a Nevada police officer anything other than your name. It is common for law enforcement to attempt to get as much information from you as possible before ever arresting you or delivering your Miranda rights.  They can and will use the information they obtain from you, starting from your very first interaction with them at the crime scene, against you during a criminal trial.

Remember, the police are legally allowed to lie to you. They can tell you whatever they would like in order to get information from you. They may try to trick you into talking or saying something you shouldn’t, or they may attempt to trick you into granting access to your home to perform unwarranted search and seizure of your property. Do not provide consent for any type of search, or grant police access to your home, vehicle, or hotel room without a warrant in hand.

The sooner you speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer in Las Vegas, the better.

Keep asking until they allow you to contact Zentz & Zentz, Attorneys at Law at (702) 602-9110 for smart advice and aggressive legal defense.
