Police are required by law to state the Miranda Rights while making an arrest. "Miranda Rights" was a term coined by Miranda v. Arizona to describe information police are required to disclose to individuals they are taking into custody.
According to 384 U.S. 436,
The following procedures to safeguard the Fifth Amendment privilege must be observed: the person in custody must, prior to interrogation, be clearly informed that he has the right to remain silent, and that anything he says will be used against him in court; he must be clearly informed that he has the right to consult with a lawyer and to have the lawyer with him during interrogation, and that, if he is indigent, a lawyer will be appointed to represent him.
There are two key takeaways here –
- You have the right to remain silent
- You have the right to consult with an attorney
When police arrest a person and take them into custody, they start keeping an account of everything that person says and does to be used as evidence to support a conviction. However, you have the right to retain an attorney. An attorney can protect you and provide counsel on things you should and should not say during an interrogation. The sooner you hire a lawyer, the better.
Criminal cases are extremely time sensitive. When you retain the services an attorney can substantially affect the outcome of your case. We also understand how stressful a criminal arrest can be. Retaining an attorney can give you the peace of mind you need to move forward through the criminal process. We encourage you, if you have been arrested or your loved one was recently arrested, call us now. You have nothing to lose and much to gain by calling our firm sooner rather than later.
