  • The Right To Remain Silent: When asked questions about the situation, you are not required to say anything that would cause further problems for yourself or your case. You can plead the Fifth Amendment, and you will not have to say anything more.
  • The Right To An Attorney: If you are arrested, you have the right to have an attorney. If you are being questioned, you can ask for an attorney at any time, and one must be provided for you. Once this request has been made, you’re no longer allowed to be questioned without legal counsel present.
  • The Right To Be Considered Innocent: Even if you’ve been charged with a crime, you must be proven guilty. The courts and all those involved are to assume you are innocent unless it is proven otherwise.
