What Are The Miranda Rights?

Every law enforcement agency may create its own version of the Miranda Rights. The basic information that should be provided a suspect / defendant is:

• You have the right to remain silent.
• Anything you say 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?

Many law enforcement agencies will have the suspect sign a form acknowledging the Miranda advisement.
