Your Rights as an Accused
The United States Constitution guarantees each of us a number of rights as an accused in a criminal prosecution. Some of the most important rights you have include:
- Right to remain silent – never speak to the police without consulting with an attorney first.
- Right against self-incrimination – you cannot be forced to say anything that could incriminate yourself.
- Right to confront witnesses against you – you have a right to know who is accusing you of a crime and the right to question your accusers.
- Right to counsel – you have a right to an attorney at all stages of a criminal prosecution.
Your Constitutional rights are powerful; however, you must assert your rights for them to protect you. I will zealously defend you throughout the prosecution of your criminal case, should the need arise.
