One of the most frightening experiences any person can go through in life is being accused of committing a crime, arrested by the police, and then booked into jail. Unfortunately, it seems that some people think that once a person has been arrested by the police, then he/she must be guilty. The Torres & Faus Law Firm strongly believes in "due process of law," the "presumption of innocence," and the "right to a jury trial" afforded to all of us by the US and Texas Constitutions. Every day we firmly advocate these principles on behalf of our clients.
This may come as a shock to some people, but law enforcement criminal investigations are too often not done in the methodical and thorough manner depicted on TV crime shows such as CSI. Was evidence from the crime scene properly identified and secured by the police? Did the police interview all witnesses or just those from the accuser's point of view? Has any scientific testing been conducted on the evidence, and if so, was this testing properly done in accordance with accepted standards and procedures? Was the search and seizure of any evidence lawfully carried out by the police? Will this matter stay on your record forever?

A WORD OF CAUTION: never forget that whatever you say to the police can and will in fact be used as evidence against you in a court of law. Therefore, the Torres & Faus Law Firm strongly recommends that you invoke your constitutional right to remain silent and consult with an experienced and trusted attorney before making any statements to the police.
