What is an arrest?
What rights do I have? (Know Your Rights)
You have certain rights if you are arrested. Before the law enforcement officer questions you, he or she should tell you that:
These are your Miranda rights, guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. If you are not given these warnings, Mrs Salice will request that any statements you made to the police not be used against you in court. Note, this does not necessarily mean that your case will be dismissed. Nor does this apply if you volunteer information without being questioned by the police.
