When you or a loved one is arrested it’s important to know your rights. Anyone who is familiar with crime television or movies might be able to recite in part some of your rights when under arrest. However, do you actually know what your rights are once you’re under arrest? In today’s post we’re going to take a closer look at your rights to help you better understand the justice system.
Know Your Rights
An officer will recite you your rights only if or before they intend to question you while in custody. Your rights are legally known as the Miranda Rights have been in effect since 1966. These rights read as follows:
“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”
Now there is a variation in effect in Indiana, New Jersey, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Alaska which includes:
“We have no way of giving you a lawyer, but one will be appointed for you, if you wish, if and when you go to court.”
