The moment you are arrested, rigorous questioning by law enforcement begins. It continues with a complex legal process determined by the 7th Judicial District City Courts. Your Miranda rights permit you to remain silent and call an attorney. If you face felony or misdemeanor charges, make sure you expressly say that you want police to stop all questioning and that you want to call an attorney to represent you. Then call criminal defense attorney James L. Riotto to protect your rights throughout the criminal process.
