Miranda Rights

The officer did not read me my Miranda rights? What are the consequences of this omission?

Generally, the prosecution cannot use statements made by a suspect during a custodial interrogation unless it first demonstrates the use of procedural safeguards to secure the privilege against self-incrimination (Miranda rights). At issue most often is whether you were questioned while in custody.

You should consult the experienced attorneys at MBK to determine whether the statements you made were pursuant to a custodial interrogation. If so, your lawyer may be able to keep the prosecution from using those statements against you in court (also known as suppression of evidence).
