4 Ways to Protect Yourself if Arrested for DUI
October 7, 2011

If you are arrested by by cops or any law enforcement for a DUI in San Bernardino, it is imperative that you advise the officer involved the following:

  1. You invoke your constitutional rights to remain silent;
  2. Request that your San Bernardino DUI attorney be present during any and all interrogation or investigative questioning;
  3. You also do not consent to the search of your person, property or personal effects; and,
  4. You assert your right to three completed phone calls under the law.

It’s quite important to remain silent so that anything you say is not used against you in the court of law. If people understand that they have these rights and utilize them, it will certainly help in the long run in the defense of their case and assist the attorney handling the case in preparation of a proper defense.

All too often, people make the mistake of volunteering information after they have been read their Miranda rights and that will certainly come back to haunt them in the defense of their case. Don’t let this happen to you. Be educated and know your rights.
