Miranda Rights- A Quick Guide

We get a lot of calls from those accused of crimes that include this line "they never read me my rights". Well, while T.V. and movies have ingrained the recitation of these rights into our collective minds, the practice of "reading your rights" is often not important to an individual's case. It is not that the rights given are not important, it is what the remedy for not "reading your rights" that makes them less important to the everyday accused. First the rights only need to be read only if there is a "custodial interrogation", or in other words you are in police custody and they are questioning you.
