An “ICE Hold” is a written demand from ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) that requires state authorities to hold the individual so that ICE can take custody after the person is released from state custody. Immigrants and non-citizens in the United States face the very real threat of removal or deportation following certain criminal activity. Once a person is in custody, ICE agents will try to convince the suspect to leave the US voluntarily. It is important that if the person wishes to stay in the US, that they do not agree to this. Instead, they should always ask for a hearing before an Immigration Judge to fight the deportation. Your Oklahoma Immigration and Criminal Lawyer can still under certain circumstances motion to bond you out of ICE proceedings. The proceedings will continue but you are no longer incarcerated once your family posts a bond assuring your cooperation with the courts.

Things to keep in mind if you are being investigated for a crime or have been arrested:
Immediately speak with an attorney regarding the situation and retain them if necessary. Ideally, this would be prior to making any statements to law enforcement. Always be polite and courteous with any law enforcement officer. It is important not to make any sudden movements and always keep your hands in sight. Do not interfere with the police or resist/touch an officer. Officers can misinterpret even innocent actions of this nature, and because of the dangers inherent to their job are forced to take precautionary, even deadly measures. Tense situations are always handled best by remaining calm and collected. Always ask if you are under arrest, and do not give a voluntary statement without speaking to an attorney. Most of us can recite the Miranda warnings by heart, or at least the beginning. While the Miranda warning informs you of your rights post-arrest, a voluntary statement made prior to arrest can still be used against you. Never discuss crimes you are being investigated for, or have been charged with anyone except your lawyer. Always be truthful with your attorney. Your attorney is your advocate and works for you.
Confidential criminal defense communications
The attorney-client privilege protects certain communications between a client and his or her lawyer. It exists to assure clients that the information they share with their attorney is confidential, and that their attorney cannot use that information to testify against them. This rule allows clients and potential clients the full confidence in the confidentiality of their conversations with their attorney. Attorneys need to know the entire story to adequately give advice and defend their clients or assess a case. This rule applies to clients and persons seeking to become clients.
