Pay Attention to Your Miranda Rights
You learned from the television that police officers are supposed to read you your Miranda rights if you are arrested. Do you know how many Miranda rights you have? Do you know what your Miranda rights are? Do you know how important they can be?
A judge recently decided that if a police officer does not tell the person he arrests all of his Miranda rights, the criminal case against the individual might be dismissed. In a recent case, a police officer told a man about his Miranda rights, but the officer left out one of the rights. Later on, the man ended up confessing to a crime. However, the judge decided that the man’s confession could not be used against him because the police officer never told him the last Miranda right. What this means is if you are arrested, you need to pay attention to your Miranda rights.
