The Miranda warning and what happens if the police forget

Posted by David L. Clarke | May 20, 2015 | 0 Comments

The Miranda warning (or Miranda rights) is a warning given by U.S. police to a criminal suspect in police custody or in custodial interrogation before the suspect is interrogated to preserve the admissibility of his or her statements against them in criminal proceedings.

This requirement to advise a criminal suspect of his or her Miranda rights is necessitated after an individual has been arrest or placed in police custody (not free to leave).

It is important to contact a Murfreesboro criminal defense attorney to defend your rights and freedom.
