What about my Miranda Rights?

You have a right not to incriminate yourself. A lot of people have heard about it under the Fifth Amendment. But what’s really important about that is what that means is even when you feel like you have nothing to hide, the police officer who’s trying to talk to you may have a different opinion, and they may be trying to get you to talk so that they can make their case. You have the right, always, to remain silent. You have the right not to answer any questions.

A lot of people have a misconception that if they just cooperate with the police, then everything will be okay. We have found that the opposite is the case. The more you talk to law enforcement, the more likely you are to get charged and to get prosecuted. That’s why it’s important, if a police officer wants to speak with you, you tell them you want to speak to a lawyer, and then you actually call a lawyer and have one let you know if it’s okay, at that point, to speak. But have someone protecting your interests, because the police officer, when questioning you, does not have your best interests at heart.

Directions:

From I-75: Exit at the Highway 120 (South Marietta Parkway) (Exit #263) and follow the signs to KSU Marietta Campus.
