When in Jail

DO NOT TALK to the police before, during, or after the arrest, other than to say "I wish I could help your investigation, but I need to speak to my lawyer."

Be calm and polite. If you antagonize the police, they might arrest you out of spite - and you might beat the rap, but you won't beat the ride.

You have NO right of privacy if you are in custody. Police cars, jail cells, and jail telephones can all be under video and audio surveillance; don't say anything more than you have to.

Sometimes it is better to make bail than to be released on your own recognizance. Nor-Cal-Law can help you determine whether bail is better - and then we can help you get your bail reduced.
