Understanding Your Miranda Rights

A lot of people are familiar with the phrase, “I plead the fifth.” But what is that actually talking about? It refers to something that is referred to as your Miranda Rights. Essentially, when the police arrest you, you have the right to remain silent until you have had the opportunity to speak with a lawyer.

Even if you don’t feel like you have anything to hide, you should always exercise this right to avoid incriminating yourself. As the officer reading your Miranda Rights should explain, “anything that you say can and will be used against you in the court of law.” It is not unusual for law enforcement to try to get you to talk so that they can make their case. Don’t be afraid to hold your ground. You have the right to not answer any of their questions until your attorney is by your side to ensure your rights and interests are protected.

Do the Police Need a Warrant to Arrest Me in Georgia?

You might be confused about when the police need a warrant to arrest you. Here are some general guidelines. If the crime is committed in their presence, they are permitted to arrest you without a warrant. In addition, the police are allowed to render aid to stop the commissioning of a crime by making an arrest.

When law enforcement wishes to make a planned arrest, which usually follows an investigation, they are required to seek an arrest warrant from a judge or magistrate. They will need to convince the judge or magistrate that they have sufficient probable cause to perform the arrest. Whether or not the police have a warrant, you should never try to resist arrest. Doing so could end up leading to additional charges you would not have otherwise faced.
