What is the Miranda warning?

When an individual is arrested, he or she is read the Miranda warning, which typically states:

  • “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 speak to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you.”

Individuals who are not given this warning at the time of their arrests generally may not be held accountable for anything that they say or admit to while in custody.
