What should I do if I am arrested in Florida?
After an arrest in Florida, it’s very important for a person to stay silent and not discuss their case with anyone. These days, people are being recorded virtually everywhere they are after they are arrested, including oftentimes in the back of a police car and also from jail calls that they might make from the jail. So it’s important to stay silent and not discuss your case.
After that, you should call an attorney because just because you’ve been arrested, doesn’t mean you’ll be formally charged, and in some cases, an attorney may be able to convince the prosecution not to file formal charges against you after an arrest.
