What to Do After an Arrest at Creech AFBIf you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of a controlled substance, sexual assault, theft, or any other crime at Creech AFB there are a number of steps you need to take immediately. Following an arrest, you should:
- Exercise Your Article 31 Rights - The Right to Remain Silent. Once you have been arrested, you have the right to remain silent, and it is important that you do so. Air Force OSI or Military Police will likely use a number of different tactics to try to get you to admit guilt, but you do not have to (and should not) say anything that could be used against you until you speak with an attorney.
- Exercise Your Right to Legal Representation. The one thing that you should say is that you want to talk to a lawyer. You have the right to legal representation, and having an attorney present during your interrogation will help ensure that you do not say anything or make any other mistakes that could jeopardize your defense.
- Avoid Speaking with Anyone About Your Case. In addition to exercising your right to remain silent with the Air Force OSI or Military Police, you should also avoid speaking with anyone else about your case. Cellmates, friends, and even family members could become witnesses for the government, and it is imperative that you avoid giving prosecutors access – directly or indirectly – to anything that could be used against you.
