When you first find out that a warrant has been issued for your arrest, you become scared and don’t know what to do. The police have been coming over to your house or apartment, knocking on the door and asking questions. What steps should you take? The first step is to meet and retain an experienced Minnesota criminal defense attorney before you are arrested. You do not want to be arrested first and then have no lawyer present in court the next morning when you are marched in front of a judge in handcuffs wearing an orange jumpsuit. By meeting with the lawyer first, valuable information can be obtained from you to use in making a successful argument to the judge for a reduced bail or for your release without bail.
If you or someone you know has an outstanding arrest warrant, call criminal defense attorney Robert J. Shane at (612) 339-1024 for a free phone consultation or visit his website at www.criminallawyerminnesota.com for more information on criminal defense techniques and tactics.
