Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be glad to help you.

By law, you can not be evicted based on the fact that you have only been arrested and not convicted. If you are under a valid lease you need to file an answer to this eviction and have a hearing and explain to the judge that you have never been convicted of a crime and is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, so any type of arrest without conviction should no subject you to an eviction.

Also wright a letter stating the same facts to the Landlord and advice them if they continue with this unlawful eviction based on an arrest and a police report, you will seek legal counsel and will pursue legal action against the landlord. Make sure you send it by certified mail, return receipt requested for your records.

I would not count too much on legal aid, as they are usually overburdened with work and also seek an advice of a local Real Estate attorney.
