What to Do After Being Charged With a Gun Crime in Oregon
If you are charged with a gun crime in Oregon, there are several steps you should take immediately to protect your rights and increase the likelihood of a positive outcome for your case:
● Exercise your right to remain silent: As soon as you are arrested or charged with a gun crime, you have the right to remain silent. It’s important to exercise this right and not say anything to law enforcement officers until you have spoken with a Medford gun rights attorney.
● Contact an experienced Oregon gun rights attorney: Time is of the essence when you are facing criminal charges. You should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and start building your defense.
● Understand the charges against you: Your attorney will explain the specific charges against you and the potential consequences of a conviction. It’s crucial that you fully understand the charges and the potential penalties so that you can make informed decisions about your defense strategy.
● Gather any relevant evidence: If you have any evidence that could help your case, such as witness statements, video
footage, or physical evidence, you should gather it and provide it to your attorney.
● Avoid discussing your case with anyone: It’s always in your best interest to avoid discussing your case with anyone other than your attorney. Anything you say could be used against you in court.
● Attend all court appearances: Make it your top priority to attend all scheduled court appearances, including arraignment and any pre-trial hearings. Failing to appear in court can result in additional charges and/or a warrant being issued for your arrest.
