Rowenhorst Law: Protecting Your Rights
The laws of North Dakota and the United States provide protection to the accused. These protections are designed to put the burden of proving a criminal offense on the government. In this country, we hold personal freedom in the highest regard and therefore many safeguards are in place to prevent innocent people from becoming incarcerated.
If you have been arrested on a felony charge, remember you have the right to remain silent and you have the right to an attorney. Exercise your rights and contact us immediately after your arrest at (701) 203-9220.
Violations of your constitutional rights are impermissible, and we work to protect those rights. You should never try to represent yourself at any point as the legal system is complicated. Only an experienced criminal defense attorney like Brandon Rowenhorst understands how to best protect you.
What Should I Do if I Have Been Arrested for a Felony Crime?
Most people have heard of their right to remain silent and their right to an attorney, but what people may not realize is that you must first assert those rights by informing the authorities of your intention to do so.
- Stay Calm: Being aggressive or combative with law enforcement will not help you.
- Contact Rowenhorst Law: Assert your right to an attorney by informing law enforcement that you wish to contact Brandon Rowenhorst.
- Assert and Maintain Your Rights: You should communicate to the authorities during and following a felony arrest that you wish to exercise your right to remain silent. Once you have asserted this right, maintain it by remaining silent.
It is important to remember that you must maintain your rights and that even after you have asserted your rights, law enforcement may use interrogation tactics to get you to waive your right to have an attorney present during questioning. If you assert your rights, but you continue to speak to law enforcement they will interpret that as a waiver of your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney. It is absolutely crucial that once you have requested that an attorney be present, you remain silent.
