    printer friendly version

    Question: When taken into custody is the police office required to read you the Miranda Rights?

    Answer: A police officer is required to read a person his/her Miranda Rights when two conditions are present.

    -First, the person is 'in custody.'

    -Second, the police officer is asking questions of the person.

    If the police officer does not read the person his/her Miranda Rights when those two conditions apply, any statements made by the individual cannot be used against him in court as the statement will be suppressed (not allowed in court as evidence by the judge).

    If a person is in custody and the police do not ask questions of him, but he volunteers information without being asked, then those statements can be used against him in court. Likewise, if a police officer asks a person questions and he is not in custody then the statements can be used in court.

    At school some kid approached me and asked me to buy him a slushie, I agreed, I realized i owed money on my account, and asked my friend to buy it.As she was buying the slushie i was talking to damien, and he told me it was fake, and we were really freaked out. I refused to answer any questions, and they arrested me with out reading me my rights, and then he still tried getting me to answer questions.

    Police usually make arrests based on arrest warrants without having the warrant on hand. Warrants are tracked electronically by computers. Before making this type of arrest, the police officer will confirm that a hard copy of the warrant exists. Usually officers don't read miranda warnings when making an arrest relative an arrest warrant because there is no investigation to be conducted; therefore, there is no need to ask any questions. The officer's function is basically to transport the subject to jail.

    I was recently arrested for criminal mischeif because i was witnessed messing with a broken light. I was with four friends who were also jumping up and reaching for the ceiling and were touching the already broken light 2.We were waiting for our ride and a cop pulled up and was yelling at us right off the bat.He accused me automaticaly and never gave me a chance to say what happend. He only took the witness's word not ours.With out even telling me, he arrested just me and didn't read me my rights.He brought just me to the station, charged me with criminal mischeif ,and didn't even question me.
