What rights do I have if I am arrested in Dallas?

Every individual has rights that trigger upon being arrested, as well as other rights that trigger during a criminal trial, and even afterwards. One of those rights is the presumption of innocence.

Every accused individual in the United States, including Texas, is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. The government has the burden of proving every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. The fact that a person has been arrested or charged with a crime gives no inference of guilt at his or her trial. The “reasonable doubt” is the highest standard in the legal system and it is intentionally designed this way since an individual’s liberty is at stake. It requires the jury to consider all the evidence (or lack thereof) carefully and impartially. Reasonable doubt exists when a fact finder cannot say with moral certainty that an individual is guilty.

If you have been arrested or charged with a crime in Dallas, you should strongly consider hiring a Dallas criminal defense lawyer as early as possible.

Do I need an attorney even if I didn’t do anything wrong?

It depends. Sometimes cases are dismissed if there is not enough evidence of a crime being committed. However, false accusations or ambiguous evidence can lead to charges and a trial even if you know that you didn’t commit any crimes. Because it is hard to know which of these best describes your situation, your best bet is to seek the advice of a Dallas criminal defense attorney as soon as you are arrested or find out you have been accused of a crime.

Criminal law is an area of law that encompasses a range of cases including but not limited to: sex crimes, theft crimes, white-collar crimes, violent crimes, drug crimes, juvenile crimes, DWI/DUIs and federal crimes. Some Dallas criminal defense attorneys focus on one specific type of offense (i.e., drug crimes), while others focus on a variety of criminal defense matters.

A criminal conviction can adversely impact every aspect of your life. Defending against criminal charges in Dallas can be challenging, and having a skilled criminal defense attorney on your side can make all the difference in your case.
