William Ashe explains Miranda Rights and the importance of staying silent until consulting with an attorney.

If you have been arrested or have been charged for a criminal act, you may be looking for defense attorneys who will take the case. Invoke your Miranda rights and contact the Law Offices of William H. Ashe to have William Ashe represent you.

What Are Miranda Rights?

If you’ve ever watched a police or detective show on TV, you’ve probably heard the police recite the Miranda rights to a suspect they are arresting. These rights stem from the Fifth and Sixth Amendments that provide you with the right to remain silent when charged and arrested for a crime. You have the right to a lawyer. If you can’t afford one, an attorney will be appointed to the case.

These rights have been recited by police ever since a ruling by the Supreme Court in 1966 required defendants to be aware of them. Today, anyone who is arrested for a criminal charge has the right to not say anything to the police and to call on an attorney.

What Happens If You Are Arrested?

If you are arrested, you don’t have to speak about the charges. You don’t want to incriminate yourself by anything you say until you have had the opportunity to speak with an attorney. The police will likely ask you questions about the charges, but you can invoke the Fifth Amendment and remain silent.

You will need to seek legal counsel to handle the case. Wait to make a statement until you have spoken with your attorney. They will advise you on what to say before you go on record.

Finding The Best Defense Attorneys

You can choose to allow a general practice attorney to represent you, but that option isn’t always in your best interest. If you have been charged with a major crime, such as DUI, sex offense, drug offense, or other criminal activity, you want an experienced criminal attorney to handle your case.
