Miranda Rights Explained By A New Jersey DUI Lawyer
Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney Defending Your Rights During a DUI Arrest
When Are the Miranda Rights Supposed to be Read?
As an experienced New Jersey DUI Lawyer I advise clients that after they have been arrested, the police are supposed to read them their Miranda rights. The police are supposed to read the defendant their miranda rights before the interrogation can begin. Some interrogation questions might include: where you were, how much did you drink, what did you drink, how many drinks over the last few hours, and if you are taking any medication.
Questions like these after your arrest become subject to the Miranda rules, not the questions that they would ask you when they first pull you over. If the police officer doesn’t ask you those questions, then the fact that they didn’t read you the Miranda rights is not relevant and your case won’t be dismissed because they didn’t read it to you.
What are your Miranda Rights in New Jersey?
- You have the right to remain silent;
- Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law;
- You have a right to an attorney;
- If you cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed for you.
I Wasn’t Read My Miranda Rights
If the police do arrest you, and start to interrogate you without having your Miranda rights explained, there could be an issue that could help your case. If you’ve been under arrest, the answers to those questions are subject to a hearing. At a hearing it will be determined if those statements can be suppressed and not be able to be used against you at a trial and where a judge would decide that your rights were violated or not.
