You Have The Right to Remain Silent!

Josa Silva Jr. Attorney You Have The Right To Remain Silent!

You get stopped by law enforcement. What do you do? They start asking questions that if answered, could have you arrested. There are a few things you should know. First, you have the constitutional right to remain silent. Besides your name, address and contact information, shut up and keep your thoughts to yourself! That means you are not obliged to answer questions. In fact, feel free to say, Silva said I have the constitutional right to remain silent. Now, these cops for sure will be angry and threaten to arrest you.

So, suppose for a moment, you are in custody. When in custody, you are not free to leave, especially if you are handcuffed. But, when you are in custody, law enforcement must read you your Miranda Rights before asking you any questions. The Miranda Rights will sound like “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.”

Play it safe and remember “mums the word” all the way. Never give a statement to law enforcement. You will regret it unless you are the victim. Remember, the first sentence “You have the right to remain silent.”
