What to Do if a Family Member or Friend is Arrested.
You have rights even when arrested and/or detained. The O’Mara Law Group created an extensive guide to help family members and friends in the case of a loved one being arrested. Knowing these rights is especially important if one is unfamiliar with the process. The guide includes information about the steps to take after the arrest, what their rights are, and what to be aware of if your loved one has mental health issues, disabilities, if they are a minor, and much more.
