Criminal Law

Where Can You Turn For Help After An Arrest?

If you have been arrested in Rochester, the first problem you may have is understanding the language of criminal law and procedure. It can be disorienting, no matter the charges, and law enforcement is not concerned with your understanding or feelings.

They tell you what to do and where to go, but they won't explain any of it. It's not their job. Arresting, booking and convicting you of the criminal charges are the limits of their interests.

Don't Speak With The Police

You need to speak with our attorney at Scibetta Law Office, and the sooner, the better. You may feel compelled to argue with the arresting officer or "explain" your situation as you are being processed.

No Matter What, Don't!

That line you may remember from countless television police dramas and the movies about "Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law" is true. If you continue to talk, you will find out the painful truth behind that statement. They really mean it. And because you may be confused or overwhelmed, nothing you say can help.

Law enforcement have arrested you; your credibility is not likely to be seen as very great, so here's what you need to do. Ask the officer, state trooper, or sheriff's deputy, very politely, that you want to speak with an attorney and that any interview is over. Then remain silent.

Scibetta Law Office provides experienced representation for individuals accused of:

  • White collar crimes
  • Drug charges
  • Federal charges
  • Violent crimes
  • Offenses involving guns
  • Domestic violence

Has Your Child Been Arrested At School?

There are numerous colleges and universities in the Rochester, New York, area. Many young people may be away from home for the first time in their lives and living with friends and roommates.

This may be a great growth opportunity. But these young adults may not always make the best decisions. They may use alcohol, drugs or be pressured by peers to make other unwise choices.

You Don't Want A Bad Choice To Ruin Their Future

Our lawyer understands the concerns of parents to protect their children, and we will work to make the best of a difficult circumstance, potentially working with an alternative court, diversion program, probation or in some cases, resolving the matter in a way that won't jeopardize their future opportunities.

We can assist in cases involving college students charged with:

  • Assaults
  • Forgery
  • Fake IDs
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Resisting arrest
  • Underage drinking/DUI/DWI
