If you are Arrested

An arrest is a detention where you are not free to leave if the police believe you have committed a crime. Police are to read your Miranda Rights once you are arrested only if they want to question you. These rights are read to you and you should take them very, very literally:You have the right to remain silent (and you should exercise this right.)Anything you say can and will be used against you.You have a right to have an attorney present.If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.YOU SHOULD REMAIN SILENT EXCEPT TO TELL POLICE YOU WANT AN ATTORNEY BEFORE YOU SAY ANYTHING ELSE.Once in custody, you only need to give your name, address, and show identification if you have it. Do not say anything other than you want an attorney. Do not make matters worse by trying to talk your way out of the situation and providing information “that can and will be used against you in a court of law.”Call The Parnell Law Firm so we can intervene on your behalf quickly.
