A LOOK AT MIRANDA RIGHTS IN CRIMINAL CASES

image5.pngThe law requires all suspects to be informed of their rights before being questioned. If the police officers do not inform a suspect of his or her Miranda rights, a criminal defense attorney near Rockville may be able to have the charges dropped or certain evidence declared inadmissible in court. For example, if you signed a confession and you were not informed of your right to have an attorney represent you, a criminal lawyer can have the confession declared invalid.

You can learn more about your Miranda rights by watching this brief video. It explains the legal precedent, which was established by the ruling in the case of Ernesto Miranda v. Arizona. Miranda confessed to kidnapping and rape, yet his conviction was overturned because the police officers did not inform him of his rights before the interrogation.
