What are Miranda Rights?
Following the Supreme Court case of Miranda vs. Arizona in 1966, the Miranda Rights were established. Before an officer arrests you or conducts a custodial interrogation of you, he or she must recite your Miranda rights. They are as follows:
- The right to remain silent
- Anything you say can and will be used against you
- The right to consult an attorney
- The right to have an attorney present at the time of questioning
- An attorney will be provided at no cost if you cannot afford one
If you have been taken into police custody and were not read your Miranda Rights, then you should contact the West Palm Beach criminal defense lawyers of Eric N. Klein & Associates, P.A. right away by calling 561-353-2800.
