The Houston Police Department wastes no time at all when it comes to arresting and charging people if they have probable cause indicating their involvement in a criminal offense.
The best thing to do if you are arrested by the police is to keep your mouth shut, not volunteer information, and don’t run or fight the police.
Once you have made it to jail, its important that you bond out as soon as possible and talk with an attorney to find out what your best options may be when it comes to fighting the charge.
Sometimes, pleading not guilty and fighting the criminal charge accusations in the court of law is the best route to go, when in other cases it makes sense to plea out, accept probation, a fine, or a short time in county jail.
Regardless of what criminal offense you’ve been accused of, its best to always talk with a lawyer who has experience defending people who were in similar predicaments.
