What are Miranda Rights?

The Miranda warning is a statement often given to suspects who have entered police custody.   It includes the right to remain silent and informs a suspect that their statements may be used against them in court.  It also alerts the suspect to their right to an attorney.

Contrary to popular belief, police are not required to give detained individuals the Miranda warning under all circumstances. However, if the police want to interrogate a person they have in custody, they need to ensure that this person knows and understands his or her rights before questioning begins.

If you have been charged with a crime and are worried about protecting your rights, call 713-222-0400 to contact the Houston criminal defense attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer.
