The officer didn't read me my rights!

Posted by attorney Dennis Sullivan

Your Miranda rights (the right to remain silent and to have an attorney present when being questioned) only apply to a CUSTODIAL INTERROGATION. That means that you must 1. be under arrest and 2. the officer must be asking you questions about the crime for which you are arrested. Things you tell the officer which are not in response to questioning may still be admissible against you.

  1. REMAIN SILENT!

  2. ASK FOR A LAWYER

  3. SEE RULE #1!!!
