Your Miranda Rights
  • You have the right to remain silent.
  • Anything you say or do can and will be held against you in a court of law.
  • You have the right to speak to an attorney.
  • If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.
  • Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?

Even after you are arrested and read your Miranda Rights or given a form similar to the one above to sign, you should still request to exercise your right to not make any statements or answer any questions, no matter how minor, without your attorney present. Do not say or write anything. THIS APPLIES NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE PROMISED OR ADVISED BY ANY POLICE PERSONNEL.
