Why You Need an Illinois Criminal Defense Attorney Immediately After an Arrest

Chicago Criminal Lawyers Helping Your Case

One reason you need to hire an attorney immediately after an arrest is for the purposes of preserving evidence. There are many types of evidence that can exonerate you, but some are only available for a short time. Certain evidence, such as video of the event in question, must be collected and preserved within just a few days.

If surveillance or other video footage shows that you did not commit the crime for which you were arrested, such evidence will be crucial to your defense. Your attorney must act quickly, however, or the video may be overwritten and no longer usable.
