Protecting Your Loved Ones During a Federal Arrest: Dos and Don’ts

Witnessing the arrest of a family member or close friend by federal agents can be an incredibly confusing and emotionally charged experience. The Spodek Law Group understands the gravity of such situations, and through this article, aims to highlight essential tips and actions to take in case you ever find yourself in this position. Keep in mind that it is crucial to remain calm, professional, and astute during the entire process.

Responsible Actions to Take

Gather All Pertinent Information
It’s crucial for you to collect as much information as possible about the charges being levied against your loved one and the reasons behind the federal authorities’ decisions.

Document the Arrest Process
Ensure that proper and correct procedures are followed during the arrest. Taking detailed notes of any irregularities or inappropriate actions during the arrest might help the defendant’s attorney get the charges dismissed.

Retain A Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Services
Due to the complexity of federal charges, promptly hiring a criminal defense attorney experienced in handling federal criminal cases is essential. These professionals understand how to work with the government and navigate the intricacies of the federal criminal process.

Attend the Pretrial Hearing
Make sure to attend your loved one’s pretrial hearing to gain a better understanding of the charges they face. Here, you may provide authorities with information that could potentially improve the accused’s case.

Read Up on Federal Law
Familiarize yourself with the charges against your loved one, and the federal laws pertinent to the case, to stay informed and involved.

Find Out Where Detention Is Taking Place
Your loved one will likely be held at a federally-operated holding center until their release. Make sure they receive necessary items such as clothing and medications during this time.

If the authorities request your cooperation, do so without resistance, as defiance could prove detrimental to your loved one’s case.

Irresponsible Actions to Avoid

Interfering or Behaving Irrationally
It’s natural to feel upset, confused, and angry; however, refrain from letting these emotions take over. Questioning or hindering the arrest process will only impede the proceedings and cause additional problems for your loved one.

Not Remaining Silent
Exercise your right to remain silent and avoid revealing any incriminating information, as even a minor slip-up could provide authorities with the evidence needed to build a more persuasive case against the accused.

Discussing the Case with Anyone
Only ever discuss any case-related facts or information with your loved one’s federal criminal defense lawyer. Never share any knowledge or opinions about the case with anyone else, especially on social media.

Never lie to authorities, as this could further damage the accused’s case and potentially result in additional federal charges for you.

Contacting the Spodek Law Group

The federal criminal process can be incredibly challenging for both the accused party and their loved ones. By adhering to these dos and don’ts, you stand a better chance of helping your loved one survive the ordeal unscathed or, at the very least, minimize the harsh consequences.
