Miranda Rights
Last Modified: July 22, 2024

If you’ve already been arrested, you were likely handcuffed and taken to the police station. This is considered being in police custody and triggers important rights.

While in police custody, law enforcement officials (both state and federal) must Mirandize you before questioning.  The Miranda warning requires that police advise you of your right to an attorney and your right to remain silent when questioned by the police. It also warns that anything you say can be used against you to support their case..

When faced with questions from law enforcement it is almost always better to assert your Miranda rights and remain silent. Summit Defense never lets clients talk to the police—except in rare situations and only with us present.
– Criminal Attorney and former Police Officer/DA, Mario Andrews
