False assault accusations can ruin someone’s life. It can affect their reputation, employment, relationships, and ultimately can jeopardize their freedom. If you are facing false assault accusations, you need to act fast to protect your rights. Our team at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. explains what you should do if someone falsely accuses you of assault.

Exercise Your Rights

If you have been arrested, it is vital that you exercise your right to remain silent. Anything you say or do can be used against your case – even if you were falsely accused. You shouldn’t disclose any information, except your personal identification information to police officials. Remaining silent until you have an attorney on your side will prevent the prosecution from using information that they can twist and make you look guilty.

Gather Evidence to Support Your Case

If you are facing assault charges, you should keep any information that you can use to prove your case. Whether it’s text messages, witness contact information, etc. Having evidence to support your case can help prove your innocence.

Contact an Attorney

Even though you are facing false charges, you need an experienced attorney on your side to help you develop a strong defense. Although you know the charges are false, the prosecution will do what they can to prove otherwise. You need a legal team who can help you gather strong evidence that demonstrates that you were falsely accused of assault.
