Arrested or suspected of a crime in France
The French criminal proceedings code ensures a balance between the rights of the accusation, represented by the prosecutor of the Republic, and the rights of the persons suspected of a crime.
No matter the circumstances, an efficient defence strategy requires to be defined at the earliest stage of the proceedings.
It is therefore highly recommended to appoint a lawyer as soon as possible.
