If I am accused of a crime but I have not been charged or arrested, what should I do?

If you have been accused of a crime, that means that either an officer or some other law enforcement official has contacted you. If you haven’t been arrested or indicted, that may mean that the case has not been presented to a grand jury (in the case of very serious charges). It is still a great idea to contact a criminal defense attorney because you want to be very particular about who you share the information about the accusation with and who you talk to about other facts and information. You want to be sure that the evidence that proves your innocence is preserved. There are a lot of things that a criminal defense attorney can help you with prior to charges coming down, including doing some initial investigation, potentially contacting law enforcement on your behalf, and giving you peace of mind as far as the process. It is certainly important that you contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
