He shouldn't talk to the cops without an attorney present, nor is he required to.
They don't have to read him his rights unless he is questioned while in custody. They will tell him he is free to leave at anytime if/when he arrives voluntarily or they will read him Miranda and ask him to waive his rights.
Again he doesn't ever have to talk to the cops, nor should he talk. He doesn't even need to go to the cop shop. He should contact an attorney.
An Attorney-Client relationship has not been established. Becket J. Jones is not your attorney.
Do not speak with the police without counsel. Hire an attorney ASAP and let the attorney respond to the police not you.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
Your boyfriend is under no obligation to talk to the police, either verbally or in a written statement. In fact, he should not talk to the police without the advice of counsel. It does not matter whether the police advised him of his rights--he has them, whether or not he was advised. As for you, were you the one who called the police? Did you already make some kind of statement? You need to be careful about making any statement because if you contacted the police and made a false report and are saying you now wish to retract that, you are opening yourself up to criminal liability (filing a false police report). It sounds like the police may not have enough evidence at this point to have charges brought. It sounds like you answered at least some police questions. Without knowing exactly what was asked and what you said, it is hard to say whether or not you should make any additional statement to the police. You don't have to say anything to them, and should seek more specific advice before deciding. Best wishes to you.
DO NOT turn in any written statements, UNLESS you want them used against you. Try to imagine that everything you say or write is going to be blasted in court at full volume for everyone to hear. No one has a duty to make a statement to police and those who are being targetted by police have a right to remain silent and not furnish a link in the chain of evidence against him. Both you and your boyfriend should exercise your right to remain silent. If this is a domestic violence case and you are the alleged victim, I can help get the case possibly DISMISSED if you are ready to help.
Under NO circumstances should your boyfriend speak to them. They are trying to convict him.

I have added a link below which is a lecture video on You Tube entitled, Don't Talk to the Police. It is quite informative. I have shard this with my own clients on several occasions. You will be convinced after watching this lecture.
