What To Do If You Are Being Investigated

If you are being investigated you are a suspect. If law enforcement questions you, regardless of what they say, you have rights and you have the right to have an attorney present. If law enforcement believes there is evidence, they may ask a judge for a search warrant.

If authorities have gathered enough evidence to convince a judge that a crime was committed and that you may have committed that crime, the judge may issue an arrest warrant. When law enforcement receives an arrest warrant, they take you into custody.  They don’t care if you are innocent. The initial charges determine the amount of bail, or whether a bail may be set.
