Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyer Looks for Miranda Warning Violations

As a Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyer, I make sure a defendant’s rights were read when I receive a Jacksonville criminal case that involves police questioning.  In Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966), the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the Fifth Amendment’s privilege against self-incrimination required police to inform a criminal defendant of the following rights:

  1. the right to remain silent; 
  2. anything that the defendant says can be used against him;
  3. the right to the presence of an attorney; and 
  4. if the defendant cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided to him.
Miranda warnings must be given prior to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office’s Interrogation.  The interrogation must be a result of government conduct and the Jacksonville Criminal Defendant must be in police custody.  
If you were arrested after being questioned by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, contact a Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyer at (904) 685-1200, extension 103.
