Know Your Rights When You’re Under Arrest
No matter how terrified you feel, remember you have legal rights in the arrest process. Importantly, you are innocent until proven guilty. Police officers tend to make suspects feel otherwise, making it easy for arrestees to feel like all hope is lost.
However, you should be mindful of the following legal rights during an arrest:
- The right to remain silent
- The right to an attorney
- If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be appointed for you
Do these rights sound familiar? A police officer must read your Miranda Warning before interrogating you in custody. Anything you say can be used against you, so speak wisely.
It is in your best interests to politely and respectfully decline the police officers’ requests to question you. Do not be rude or aggressive. The police are legally allowed to ask for your license, proof of insurance, vehicle registration, or a signature on a traffic ticket. You do not have to answer any further questions without a lawyer present.
Before you say anything to the police during custodial interrogation, exercise your right to an attorney. Your freedom depends on it.
