Know Your Rights
Do I Have Rights When I’m Arrested?
The short answer is, yes. As you are undergoing arrest, you have rights protected under the Constitution:
- An officer must read you Miranda Rights
- The right to remain silent
- Any statements made can be used as evidence against you
- You have the right to an attorney, and if you can’t afford an attorney one will be provided to you
- The right to refuse consent to a search of your car, yourself and your home
- If you are arrested, you have the right to a phone call for someone to act on your behalf
- You are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law
- If you are not under arrest, you have the right to leave. Always let it be known of your intention to leave
- Whether you are an immigrant or a citizen, the Constitution poses protected rights regardless of the status
