In the United States of America, any person accused of committing a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Therefore, a person charged with a crime should not be denied freedom unless there is sufficient reason not to grant bail. A person cannot be detained without specific charges.
Once arrested, you have:
– the right to know the charges.
– the right to be presumed innocent.
– the right to non-excessive bail.
– the right to a fair and speedy trial.
– the right to make a phone call after being arrested.
– the right to an attorney or a public defender.
– the right to to have your property returned to you when released form jail on bail (Excluding evidence).
