What to expect from an arrest in Florida

While our country prides itself on offering citizens certain unalienable rights, there are some rights that can vary depending on the state you are in. In Florida, if a law enforcement officer ever takes you into custody, you will officially be under arrest; it is important to remember that law enforcement officials tell you why you are under arrest and identify themselves. Additionally, it is worth mentioning that you can be detained without being arrested, depending on the circumstances.

After you are arrested in Florida, you will be taken to the police station and made aware of the charges you are facing. In order gain a better idea of your identity and profile, police may ask for a fingerprint, photograph and they may even dress you up or ask for a hair sample in an effort to bolster incriminating eyewitness testimony. Those who are accused of a crime have the right to legal defense, and it is highly recommended that they get into contact with their attorney immediately.

Of course if you were not expecting to be accused of a crime, you may not have familiar legal assistance available. In this instance, it is important to know your rights when questioned by the police. These rights include the right to remain silent, which can be invoked at any time, even if you had already begun answering a question.

If you are ever arrested in Florida, it is highly recommended that you enlist the aid of an attorney as quickly as possible to help you understand and exercise your rights while in police custody. You may be able to avoid issues that you were not even aware of and avoid accidentally incriminating yourself if you have an attorney present during questioning.
