Miranda Rights Explained

Atlanta Criminal Defense Attorneys Review Your Rights

Police officers will say they want "your side of the story" but in reality they just want you to confess or make statements that can used against you in court. Do not speak to the police without first consulting a lawyer.

You Have the Right to Remain Silent

This is the most important thing to remember even before you are placed under arrest. If you are being investigated for a criminal act, or even just questioned by the police, it is not in your best interest to speak to law enforcement without first consulting a lawyer. You have nothing to gain by speaking to the police and everything to lose. As soon as a police officer tells you he wants to speak with you or asks you a question, other than your name, tell the officer you would like to remain silent and speak to a lawyer.

Anything You Say Can and Will be Used against You

Police officers are trained to ask specific questions in order to obtain answers that lead to you providing evidence against yourself. They can lie to you about the “evidence” and they will try to trick you into admitting to committing a crime, being a party to the crime or even just being at the scene of a crime. If you misspeak, do not remember all the details or simply crack under the pressure of police questioning, you put your freedom at risk. Additionally, since Georgia does not require that all police interviews be recorded, there is no guarantee that the Police will accurately write down your statement. In fact, typically they will only put the parts of your statement that make you look guilty in their report.

You Have the Right to an Attorney

Your attorney will only have one agenda, protecting your Constitutional rights. You need an attorney who is not intimidated by the police and who is focused on protecting your interests and your freedom. You cannot be harmed by asking for a lawyer and your failure to answer questions cannot ever be used against you.
