If I am accused of a crime, but I have not been charged or arrested, what should I do?

If you haven’t been charged or arrested, it’s still is a good idea to talk to a lawyer and discuss representation. If you’re aware that someone has claimed that you’ve committed a crime, it is fair to assume that at some point you may start getting calls from police officers. There may even be a warrant for your arrest that you’re not aware of.

So, discussing with a lawyer your options and what the accusations are, if you’ve gotten any communications from the police or any investigators, should be the very first thing.
