Miranda Warnings

Before the police can question someone who is in custody, they must give Miranda warnings, which are:

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney.  If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you.
