What procedures are usually followed when you are arrested?
The officer will take you to a police station or the Sheriff’s office.
You will be advised generally as to the charges against you. However, these charges may be changed later and stated in more detail by the prosecutor or in some instances by the grand jury.
You may be required to participate in a lineup, to prepare a sample of your penmanship, to speak phrases associated with the crime with which you are charged, to wear certain apparel. You have an absolute right to counsel. If you are arrested, you should immediately ask to talk to and contact a lawyer.
You may also be required to be photographed or fingerprinted.
