One might think that someone who is arrested for breaking the law and committing a crime is automatically stripped of their rights. It seems fairly logical – proper punishment, right? Wrong. People who have broken the law and gotten arrested may lose some rights, but not all. They still have rights, which they can use to protect themselves in case they are incriminating themselves, or the police are abusing their authority.
The most well-known rights arrestees have are the Miranda Rights. The Miranda Rights reminds arrestees that they have the right to remain silent – anything they say can be used against them in court. They also have the right to an attorney, whether court-appointed or privately hired.
In addition to Miranda Rights, most arrested people will have the right to bail. Some arrested individuals accused of committing very serious crimes or deemed a high flight risk, will be denied bail. Every person who is eligible for bail is encouraged to post it. Do not let a very high bail be a reason to not post bail.
