IF I'M ARRESTED, WHAT DO I DO?

If you're arrested, the smartest course of action is to not make any statements at all and ask to speak to a lawyer. When you ask to speak to a lawyer, your statement can't later be used against you in court. If you were to have a jury trial, the jury would never find out that you asked for a lawyer. The judge wouldn't hold it against you.

HOW DO I KNOW IF THERE IS A WARRANT OUT FOR MY ARREST?

The best way to check in New Mexico is to go to the website www.nmcourts.gov and run your name. That will check for any state issued warrants. If you believe that your warrant might be out of the city court, you can also just call the court directly and ask if you have a warrant.

There are a lot of tricky rules about what can be used and what can't be used, and so that's why it is always best to talk to an attorney first.

How can a Las Cruces personal injury lawyer help you with your false imprisonment case?

THE REALITY OF FALSE IMPRISONMENT

Hidalgo County - on January 2, 2013, David Eckert was pulled over by law enforcement for not making a full stop at a stop sign. When stepping outside of the vehicle per police instructions, Eckert appeared to clench his buttocks. This notion alone gave law enforcement "probable cause" to suspect that there were drugs hidden in his anal cavity and Eckert was taken to the Gila Regional Medical Center where he endured humiliating procedures without providing consent. The doctors and nursing staff performed anal exams with their fingers, numerous enemas, a colonoscopy, and x-rays. After this embarrassing and terrifying ordeal, there were no drugs found.

How does a DUI charge affect your insurance?

Due to the dangerous nature of driving under the influence of alcohol, those facing a DUI charge can expect substantial criminal consequences.
