By: Attorney, Lee Cohen
Hello my name is Lee Cohen, and I want to talk to you about Miranda and what that means.
Miranda is a court decision that specifies that when you're the target of a police investigation and you're in custody, the police have to advise you that you have the right to remain silent, the right to have an attorney, the right to have an attorney appointed to you if you can't afford one, and the general right to remain silent during any questioning that they're posing to you.
And my statement to you is that anytime you're the target of an investigation, irregardless of whether or not you're in custody or not, you should remain silent and you should assert your right to remain silent pursuant to the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
And the reason why is because if the police have targeted you with a crime you want to talk to an attorney first. You want to get advice from attorney about what is happening regarding this investigation and what could happen to you depending upon what you say. And even if you're saying something innocent you want to talk to an attorney when you're the target of a police investigation and my office is available to talk to you.
My name again, is Lee Cohen and I can give you some very good advice about what to do if you're the target of a investigation from the police.
