Good to read, thanks!
The most important right is the right to remain silent.
Even if a police officer asks someone in the USA
"Are we on planet earth?"
Politely reply "i would like to consult with my attorney please"
Whether it be before a judge or police officer or the district magistrate
that's the answer i give. It can literally save a person thousands of
dollars in fines, costs, restitution and possibly years of incarceration.
Also, for those who can, have an attorney already paid for.
So before xyz "hits the fan" have a lawyer already retained.
Never hurts to have bail money already available via your attorney.
Locations differ, states differ and even counties differ. So do the homework
for your general area, meaning if xyz attorney has a good rep in that specific
county, might be the one to have on retainer. Doesn't hurt to have the
attorney in charge of sending money to your "books" just in case your
staying for a bit. That way you are not destitute while in jail.
That's money for phone calls, food, clothing, shampoo etc...
