I was arrested and charged with Child Neglect back in 2003
I was arrested and charged with Child Neglect back in 2003 and then in 2004 I was atested again and charged for other crimes which I either don't remember committing or that others stated that I committed. In both these cases I never received the given rights that stated that I had the right to remain silence and so forth. My question is, should I have been charged with the second set of crimes when the only contact I had with the police was when I was charged with Child Neglect. Before that no one had ever called the police to report that I was abusing my child.

Hi. On July 21st I was arrested and charged with fleeing an officer on a motor vehicle. I was on my ATV. I was being chased by a citizen after they attempted to assault me. While being chased by this individual the police got involved. They did not catch me during the pursuit but later arrested me at my residence. The police used my phone to call friends and family members which I had talked to following the chase. They used my phone without my consent and I was not under arrest at the time. I have the police report and phone records to verify this. Is it legal for them to do that? I am facing charges that I don't feel that I am guilty of and will lose my license and possibly my job if convicted since I need to drive for work. My lawyer doesn't seem to be much help on this. Thank you,Justin French
