If you have been picked up by an officer and arrested and then have had charges brought up against you, you should be well aware that the charges do not automatically bring a conviction and there are some things that you can do to prevent getting that conviction. The first and foremost thing that a cop has to do when they arrest you is read you your Miranda rights. If you do not know what this is, it is where they tell you the various rights that you as an individual have and if they fail to do this, you cannot be convicted on any of the charges that they have arrested you for. There are strict procedures that a police officer has to go through during the entire arrest in order to get a conviction once the case goes to court, which is why you should absolutely get a lawyer as soon as you possibly can. They will then be able to start to go over your case and figure out whether you were read your Miranda rights when you were arrested and if the police officer did everything that is required by law to bring a conviction in court.
