Bock has handled thousands of criminal cases and obtained excellent results for defendants facing some of the harshest laws in America. Here are some frequently asked questions and answers:

Do I have to allow police to search my property and possessions? If police ask for your permission to search, you are within your rights to refuse consent. However, police can search your property and possessions on their own accord if probable cause is established or they have obtained a warrant.

What happens if I lie to a federal agent? Under 18 U.S.C. 1001, it is illegal to lie to a federal agent, and a conviction can expose you to fines and imprisonment. However, it is important for you to know that you can exercise your right to remain silent if you are worried about self-incrimination.

What should I do if I am arrested? Remain silent, and contact Richard C. Bock immediately to protect your freedom and rights.

What should I do if I have a warrant out for my arrest? Contact a criminal defense attorney to negotiate a self-surrender as soon as possible, because the warrant will not go away on its own.

What is bail, and how does it work? Bail is the amount of money you are required to pay in order to leave jail from your arraignment until trial. Bond is the portion of the bail that you are required to pay to a bail bondsman to secure your release (usually 10% of your bail).

What crimes constitute a felony? Any crime punishable by at least one year of imprisonment qualifies as a felony offense.

What is a grand jury? A grand jury is a group of citizens led by a prosecutor who gather in a closed meeting to decide whether to issue an indictment charging someone with a criminal offense.

What is the difference between probation and parole? Probation is prevalent in state courts and offered as an alternative to jail or prison, whereas parole is used primarily in the federal system as a form of early supervised release from incarceration.

Do I need a lawyer’s help in fighting my criminal charges? An attorney fights for your legal and constitutional rights and ensures due process is thoroughly adhered to.
