There’s a lot to be said for having a lawyer when you’ve been arrested.
You’ve got a right to a lawyer, right to counsel, and you can be held without bail if you don’t show up to court.
But if you’re being arrested for an offense like marijuana possession, the judge may want to know how you feel about that arrest.
Here are some things you should know before and after being arrested, and how to make sure you feel comfortable talking to your lawyer.
What happens when you are arrested?
After being arrested You can have a lawyer represented if you have a court date or need legal help while in custody.
You don’t have to wait until your arraignment to call for a lawyer.
However, you should get to know your attorney in advance, and don’t hesitate to call if you need legal advice.
You can also schedule an appointment to talk with an attorney, but it’s unlikely to happen during the time you are in custody, so you might want to plan ahead to get that help.
What to do if you are charged with marijuana possession What you should do If you are caught with marijuana, the court will consider the following facts: What the crime was The amount of marijuana The date and time of your arrest The circumstances surrounding your arrest If the arrest was a first-time offense, you may not be charged with a misdemeanor offense.
If the offense involved marijuana possession or distribution, you could be charged as a third-time offender.
If you were caught with more than one ounce of marijuana, you will be charged a second-time misdemeanor offense, which carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison.
If marijuana is a controlled substance, it could carry a maximum sentence of one year in jail.
When to ask your lawyer What to say to your attorney If you need a lawyer or if you feel like your lawyer isn’t available, you can call for an appointment.
The court will typically schedule a date and location for your appointment.
You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions to make your case, and your lawyer will give you a written answer that will be reviewed by a judge and a jury.
When you get your answer, you’ll have the opportunity to sign a consent form, which is a statement that you consent to the hearing.
If your lawyer has been called for an interview, he or she will give a written explanation of what to expect, as well as give you an opportunity for a response.
You should also contact the police and tell them about the arrest, if you think they should have done more to prevent the arrest.
Who can call the police You can’t call the officers who arrested you to talk to your legal counsel, but you can ask them to help you.
If they do, the police will give the information to your criminal defense attorney, who will help you file a motion to dismiss.
This will let you take your case to a lower court, where you can appeal the case.
The police will also ask you to sign an affidavit if you suspect you’ve committed a crime and need to talk about it.
If a police officer asks you to give them your name, address, and phone number, you must comply.
When will I be able to talk?
If your attorney has been assigned to represent you at an arraignment, you have the right to talk immediately after the hearing, even if you were arrested.
The judge can schedule a time to talk and your time is up.
If this happens, you might also want to call your lawyer before the arraignment so you know what to do.
When can I call my lawyer?
You can call a lawyer right after you’ve finished your arraignments to ask for help.
The attorney will give your request and your request is then evaluated by the judge.
If it’s determined you’re eligible for a trial, the lawyer will schedule an appearance for you, and the judge will determine whether you can proceed to trial.
The lawyer can ask questions, explain what happened, and determine whether there’s anything that needs to be done to make things right.
What if my attorney is unavailable?
You have the legal right to ask a judge to dismiss your case. However — and this is a common problem with some people — the judge won’t hear your case unless you have filed an affidavit in the case and your attorney gives a written statement in support of the motion.
If there’s no legal representation, you also have the option to have your case dismissed.
If that’s the case, the case will be dismissed.
You may also be able see your attorney during the appeal process, but that attorney won’t be involved in your case and won’t get to hear the arguments or testimony that the judge hears.
If I am arrested again and my lawyer says I cannot be present at the hearing because I am an arrestee, what do I do?
If you’re still arrested and have not
