About Joint Base San Antonio

Joint Base San Antonio is a result of the consolidation of three separate military bases that were adjoined previously.

The Joint Base has a total population of approximately 295,000 people not including the approximate 138,000 students trained at the facility. Joint Base San Antonio occupies sections of San Antonio in Bexar County, TX.

Facilities within the boundaries of Joint Base San Antonio include lodging, dining and entertainment, sports and fitness, educational, recreation areas, and a major hospital.

What to Do After an Arrest at Joint Base San Antonio

If you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of a controlled substance, sexual assault, theft, or any other crime at Joint Base San Antonio, 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. CID 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 CID 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.
