This texas city criminal attorney has the firm professional opinion that when you are arrested or charged with a crime,  you should never give up your right to remain silent and insist on your right to consult with a criminal lawyer.  You should be respectful,  courteous and cooperative to the police, but that does not mean testifying against yourself.  The right to remain silent is a very valuable and sacred right protected by the United States and Texas Consitutions.  Don't give it up. You don't have to prove the case against you. Conviction of many crimes can end jobs and career prospects, cause you to lose your freedom, your drivers licenses, your right to own a firearm and even your right to vote, along with social stigma, that may last a lifetime.  If your convicted of certain sex crimes, you may have to register as a sex offender with the authorities where you reside for the rest of your life, and have your picture posted on the internet as a sex offender.  Sometimes, if certain procedures were not followed in obtaining the evidence against you, the  evidence against you can be totally suppressed, and the charges will have to be dismissed, if a motion is properly and timely presented.  Other times you may just not be guilty even though you were charged.  Sometimes a witness against you may lie. Still other times you may have a justification defense, such as self-defense or defense of a third party, which may make an assault defensible because of a justification defense. Sometimes assault may be defensible because it was the result of a public duty, such as a police officer making an arrest or a prision guard assaulting a prisioner attempting to escape It is imperative that you obtain a skilled lawyer soon after your arrest to protect your rights.    The constitutions guarantee the right to counsel in serious criminal proceedings because of the potential loss of freedom and even life in certain cases.  Don't give up the right to a lawyer either, and call this texas city criminal attorney without delay.
