Once you are arrested, the police officer must read your Miranda rights if they are going to question you about your case. The Miranda warning can take several different forms, but typically states, "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to talk to a lawyer for advice before we ask you any questions. You have the right to have a lawyer with you during questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be appointed for you before any questioning. If you decide to answer questions now without a lawyer present, you have the right to stop answering at any time."
If you were arrested and were then questioned without hearing your rights, your statements may be suppressed. This could be advantageous to your case.
