Frequently Asked Questions

  • WHAT DO I DO IF I AM ACCUSED OF A CRIME?

    • It is always best to consult a criminal defense lawyer as early as possible if you suspect you will be charged with a crime or even questioned by authorities regarding criminal activity. The skilled attorneys at The Coxen Firm, LLC can effectively advise you of your rights and guide you through this difficult time. The earlier an attorney is involved in a criminal case the more effective they can be so don't wait, contact The Coxen Firm, LLC today.

  • SHOULD I SPEAK WITH THE POLICE?

    • ​No. There is never a good reason to speak with law enforcement if suspected of a crime, and especially not without the assistance of an attorney. Contrary to what you may be told, law enforcement has no authority to "help you" or "cut a deal" with you if you speak with them. Further, law enforcement officers are trained in interview techniques that can place you at a disadvantage if you are not accompanied by a skilled attorney representative. Therefore, The Coxen Firm, LLC advises you call our office to be advised of your rights before even considering speaking to law enforcement. 

  • IF I'M ARRESTED WHAT DO I DO?

    • As discussed above, if the police arrest you, immediately ask to call an attorney. You have a Constitutional right to remain silent and a Constitutional right to an attorney. Remember anything you say to the authorities can and will be used against you.

  • WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE PROSECUTOR?

    • The prosecutor is the attorney who represents the federal, state or local government in a case against a criminal defendant. The title of the prosecutor varies by jurisdiction, but some common titles include district attorney, county attorney, city attorney, United States attorney and state attorney. The prosecutor has the public duty to punish those committing crimes, balanced with the duty to fairly try such individuals. They are trained and experienced attorneys whose job is to prosecute you, not help you. As such, if charged with a crime, you need an attorney of your own to advocate for your rights.  

  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FELONY AND A MISDEMEANOR?

    • Generally speaking, a felony is a crime that is punishable by a year or more in jail. A misdemeanor is a crime that is punishable by imprisonment of twelve months or less.

  • HOW ARE CHILDREN AND YOUTH PROSECUTED?

    • Generally, a minor is prosecuted for criminal conduct in a separate juvenile court system. The philosophy of the juvenile justice system is that children should not be punished or stigmatized for criminal conduct because of their immature abilities to make proper choices and recognize right from wrong. Instead the role of the juvenile justice system is seen as rehabilitative and guiding. There are instances, however, where juveniles are charged with certain serious crimes that can and, at times are, prosecuted in the adult criminal justice system. If your child or one you know faces criminal charges, contact The Coxen Firm, LLC today to learn more about the criminal justice system as it applies to them.
