When a person in Colorado is being placed under arrest, they may feel uncertain about what they should say or do. They especially do not want to make a bad situation worse. What they should know is that they have the right to remain silent. The police and prosecutors in a case have their own agenda, and it is important to keep in mind that their goal is a conviction if appropriate. So, it is oftentimes beneficial for a person being placed under arrest to say nothing to police except for asking for legal representation.
An attorney will be able to analyze their client's case, to identify weak spots in the prosecution's claims and develop a solid defense strategy in their client's favor. For example, when it comes to drug charges, if police performed a search and seizure, this can be fought even if the police used drug-sniffing dogs in the process. In addition, police often take shortcuts when it comes to investigating an alleged crime, which could lead to outright mistakes. These mistakes should be challenged, so they do not lead to a wrongful conviction.
