When do the police have to read me my rights in Florida?
This is a question that is most often misunderstood by individuals who get arrested in the state. The only time that your rights, as it relates to your right to remain silent, the only time those rights are read is if law enforcement is questioning you personally about the criminal behavior. In instances where law enforcement does not see the need to question a person charged with a crime, there is no requirement that your rights, or specifically your Miranda rights, are read. Recall, the only time Miranda is required to be read is when law enforcement is actively seeking a statement that could be used in the furtherance of their prosecution.Back To Criminal Defense Law Videos FAQS
