In this informative video, R. Clarke Speaks explains more about Miranda Rights and how they can affect your case.
Have you ever asked yourself what happens if you have been arrested and you are never read your Miranda Rights? How would this impact your criminal case? Mr. Speaks explains that the answer to these questions depends on the specifics of your case.
A law enforcement officer is supposed to read you your Miranda rights after a custodial interrogation. An interrogation is custodial if you are under arrest at the time it is made.
So, if you are subjected to a custodial interrogation without first being read your Miranda Rights, then anything you say subsequent to that time must be excluded from the jury’s or judge’s consideration. As a result, this can be a very important tool in preventing the state from proving that you are guilty.
