5th Amendment Right to Remain Silent

We have heard politicians and famous people exercise their Constitutional Right to Remain Silent. This is because that anything you say can and will be used against you in court of law.

Most citizens usually believe that if you say exercise your right to remain silent, you are guilty. Nothing could be further from the truth. As an Oakland Police Officer, after advising them of their Miranda Right, I would ask them if they wanted to talk to me. Virtually every person agreed to waive their Miranda rights and talk to me. Usually this was not in their best interest.

In our law office, we counsel people all the time that most people should exercise for constitutional right to remain silent. It is also agreed that politicians and famous people were correct in exercising their right to remain silent and not talk to government officials, e.g., usually police. [Miranda v. Arizona 384 U.S. 436 (1966)].

If you've been convicted of a crime, schedule an initial consultation and speak to a representative at your earliest convenience by calling us at (888) 865-0741.
