Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a crime in Salt Lake City, you are likely frightened, angry, and unsure of where to go. What do criminal charges mean for your future? Who can you turn to when you’re facing the possibility of jail?

Your Rights After Being Charged With a Crime

If you’ve been accused of committing a crime, it is critical that you understand your rights under the law. No matter what crime you were charged with, you have the right to a zealous legal defense as guaranteed by the United States Constitution. Attorney Jose A. Loayza believes that no crime should go undefended, and he will provide you with the aggressive legal support you need when your future is on the line.

You also have the right to remain silent after being arrested, and it is important that you invoke this right as soon as possible. Anything you say can and will be used against you in court, and it is almost always in your best interest to avoid giving law enforcement potential ammunition against you. Even if you are innocent and are telling the truth, it is possible for law enforcement and the prosecution to twist your words to support their own agenda.

Do not answer any questions posed by law enforcement at the time of your arrest or during an interrogation. Instead, invoke your right to speak to a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
