DUI & Miranda Warnings
If you have watched the show cops, you probably have heard this statement before: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law…” This statement is known as the Miranda warning.
In a DUI investigation the Miranda warning is not required unless an officer arrests you and the officer asks you incriminating questions.
What Is the Legal Remedy for a Miranda Rights Violation?
Your attorney can file a motion to suppress, which if argued successfully will prevent any statements you made to the police from being used against you. This can weaken the State’s case against you, which in turn can lead to a plea bargain or even a dismissal of the charges.
