Know Your Rights

Scale in an empty courtroom | Salzmann Law in Bloomington, IN

People generally misunderstand their rights. For example, you have the right to refuse a breath test, but if you do, your license will be automatically suspended for one year (or more, depending on your record). The police must advise you of your rights if they intend to question/interrogate you (Miranda Warning), but they do not need to advise you of your rights to arrest you. That’s “movie law.”

Some rights have time limits – like the formal defenses of insanity and self-defense. Your right to a jury trial can even be in jeopardy if not requested within the guidelines of the law.

So it’s important to get someone on your side to explain what your rights are and how they apply to your case. Don’t wait.
