What to Do After an Arrest 

If you have been arrested in Texas, it is important to understand your legal rights and the criminal justice process. Knowing what to expect can help you protect your rights. Immediately after an arrest, you have the right to remain silent and not answer any questions from police officers. You also have the right to an attorney and should contact one as soon as possible. 

The criminal justice process in Texas begins with an arrest or citation for a crime. After being arrested, you will be taken into custody and booked into jail where you may be held until your arraignment hearing. At this hearing, you will enter a plea of guilty or not guilty, and if you plead not guilty, there may be additional hearings before going to trial. Depending on the circumstances of the case, there may be the possibility of being released on bail or held in jail until your trial date.

To help your case, you can take the following steps:

  • Contact a qualified criminal defense attorney as soon as possible
  • Remain silent and do not answer any questions from police officers without consulting with an attorney first
  • Do not discuss your arrest on social media or with anyone other than your lawyer
  • Find out if you qualify for bail and contact a bail bond agent, if necessary
  • Attend all court hearings and follow instructions given by your attorney
