After a suspect bails out or is released on their ‘Own Recognizance’ they are given a ‘Notice to Appear’ in court on a future date. It is very important to note that the criminal investigation is still on-going. In fact, it is not uncommon for police agencies to go out an re-interivew the suspect in order to obtain more incriminating statements in order to build a stronger case. It is always wise to obtain a lawyer immediately so that if you are contacted by the police for a secondary interview that you can refer all calls to your lawyer. Police agencies refer to this as lawyering up.
