Know Your Rights Following an Arrest

a gavel, scale, and law booksIf you or a loved one got arrested, would you know which rights detainees are entitled to? There is a lot of misinformation floating around. For example, did you know that you’re not limited to one phone call when you’re under arrest? Here are the rights you need to know about.

Miranda Rights

These are the rights that police must read to you when you’re being arrested. You have the right to remain silent, and you should exercise that right until you can have an attorney present at the questioning. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. Don’t give officers information that they can use against you. You have the right to an attorney. You are not obligated to take part in questions or tests (such as a line-up or Breathalyzer) without speaking to your attorney first. If you cannot afford an attorney, the court will provide one.

Other Arrest Rights

You have the right to contact a responsible person and let them know you have been arrested. You can have as many calls as necessary to make this happen.

You have the right to secure bail, and the right to be seen in court as soon as it is practical and possible.
