The Right to Remain Silent

If you are arrested, you must do everything you can to protect your rights. Any attempt you make to explain the situation, and anything you do that can later become part of the testimony used to convict you, will only make your case more difficult to defend. The United States Constitution guarantees you the right to be free from self-incrimination. That is why, when the police officer arrests you, they tell you that you have the right to remain silent. Exercise that right!
