What Are My Rights?

If you or a loved one has been arrested for a crime, you may be feeling overwhelmed or unsure of what steps to take next. It’s important to remember that you still have rights when you’ve been charged with a felony or misdemeanor in Mississippi, and the experienced help of a criminal defense lawyer is vital.

When you’ve been arrested for a crime, you are legally entitled to certain rights. These rights may include:

  • Your Miranda rights (the right to remain silent)
  • The right to telephone an attorney, family member, or friend
  • Knowledge that anything said can be used against you in court
  • The right to have an attorney present during questioning
  • The right to have an attorney present during a lineup
  • A court-appointed attorney if you cannot afford one
