Even if you have been charged with a crime, you still have rights. It is important to be aware of and understand what these rights are. In this informative video, R. Clarke Speaks goes over the details of asserting your Miranda Rights.
These rights include:
- The right to remain silent
- The right to refuse consent to search
- The right to an attorney
A common mistake that Mr. Speaks has observed is when people fail to properly assert these rights. For example, some will go to the police officer and answer questions without having representation. This is not a good idea because law enforcement officers are trained to question you in a non-threatening way. However, these questions but can be a threat to your case and may undermine your defense.
If you are charged with a crime, it is important to find representation from a criminal defense attorney. Call someone who can help you through this process. Call North Carolina criminal defense attorney R. Clarke Speaks before you sit down with any enforcement officer at 877.593.4233.
