Crime… and its Aftermath

GETTING ARRESTED - YOUR RIGHTS AND WHAT TO EXPECT: Lesson 1

Getting Arrested

  • When you are arrested, a law enforcement officer (deputy sheriff, police officer) can arrest you on the spot if they see you commit a crime, or if they have probable cause (a reasonable belief under the circumstances) to believe you have just committed a crime.
  • You can also be arrested if a judge issues an arrest warrant in other circumstances.
  • For instance, an investigation has established probable cause that you committed a crime.
  • When you are arrested, you will be searched, handcuffed, and taken to the police station.
  • If there is an arrest warrant, you have the right to read the warrant.
