When Do the Police Have to Read Me My Rights?
Your "rights," otherwise known as the Miranda warnings, are a list of statements that law enforcement must recite to you before they can conduct a custodial interrogation. While the exact wording differs between jurisdictions, the warnings generally state as follows: You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to have an attorney present. If you can’t afford an attorney, you will be provided one by the government. Anything you say can be used against you in court.
Every state requires police to give the warnings in some form after taking a suspect into custody.
