THE MIRANDA WARNING AND WHAT HAPPENS IF THE POLICE FORGET

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).

If you were not properly Mirandized by the police, a criminal defense attorney may be able to block (or suppress) your statements from appearing as evidence in court, which may affect the outcome of your case. It is important to contact a Murfreesboro criminal defense attorney to defend your rights and freedom.
