Know Your Rights

“No, I do not want to answer your questions. I want a lawyer.” You have constitutional rights. If you are arrested, you have the right to remain silent. The police will ask you questions to gather evidence against you, and whatever you say to them can and will be used against you in court. Instead of answering their questions, you have a right to ask for an attorney. You should always invoke your right to remain silent and your right to speak to an attorney.
