You may have been the victim of mistaken identity or need to defend yourself when arrested for a crime. You may be wrongfully accused or facing charges for things you didn’t do.

Tellez Law Firm Keys to Preventing Criminal Charges.
- Don’t smoke weed in your car—the odor of marijuana is reasonable suspicion for the search of a vehicle in Arkansas.
- Do not leave paraphernalia (pipes, baggies, etc.) or residue (powder, shake, roaches, etc.) in plain view.
- Be aware that if law enforcement orders you out of a vehicle, they can perform a quick frisk for officer safety (your pockets are fair game).
- Never consent to a search of your person or property.
- Never admit to having “a little bit of [any illegal substance]” in your vehicle or on your person, even if a law enforcement officer says they are not looking for that.
- Law enforcement officers can lie to you.
- Never give a statement to law enforcement without a lawyer present.
