Understanding the Miranda Rights

call-ontario-bailbonds


The right to remain silent and the right to have a lawyer represent you are two rights every arrested person has. These are the Miranda Rights, which the police are required to read to every person that’s arrested.


The Miranda Rights are named after Ernesto Miranda, who was arrested in the 1960s and accused of kidnapping, rape, and robbery. During his trial, it was revealed that the police used intense and intimidating interrogation methods to lead him to confess. The court found this unjust and unfair, so his conviction was overturned. After additional evidence and eyewitnesses, he was eventually found guilty once again.

Miranda’s case, along with another in the 1960s, Escobedo vs. Illinois, brought about the Miranda Rights. The defendants in both cases were unaware of their full rights: the right to remain silent until their lawyer was present, and the right to have a lawyer during interrogation.

If a defendant is unaware of these rights, then they are more likely to offer a confession, whether or not they are truly guilty of the crime they are being accused of. In addition, without a lawyer, the police may use intimidating interrogation methods in order to force a confession. The suspect would give in, for they have no lawyer present to help fight back and protect them.

It is the suspect’s best interest to have a lawyer. If they can afford a private attorney who can specialize in the defendant’s case, they should go with that option. A private attorney will have more time to spend on the defendant’s case. In return however, they can be costly to afford. If the defendant cannot afford a private attorney, the court will appoint one to them. Court-appointed lawyers are neither ill-prepared nor unqualified, but they do tend to have more cases and clients to take care of than a private attorney. Thus, they must split attention and efforts across their multiple clients.

If your loved one has been arrested, the police will read them their Miranda Rights. It is very unlikely the police will neglect or forget to do so but in that small chance it happens, you can use that oversight as leverage. Make sure your loved one is aware of their rights, and from there take it one step at a time to get your loved one home and through trial.

Holiday Travel and Staying On the Nice List

call-ontario-bailbonds

Travel peaks during the holiday season as everyone goes on a holiday vacation to be with loved ones. We always try to remain on our best behavior, partially because we want to stay on Santa’s Nice List, but really, it is due to the fact that we are adults now. We do not want to run into any trouble with the law, especially when we are out of our own state.

Getting arrested outside of our own state causes more of a headache for the defendant than if he or she were arrested within their state. In some instances, the defendant may have a local lawyer represent them in court while the defendant returns home, but in other cases, the defendant will be required to appear in court. This may mean that the defendant has to prolong their stay in the state, or keep making travel arrangements back and forth. That is time and money lost for the defendant.

Ontario Bail Bond Store bails defendants out of California jails, but cannot help those who are arrested in other states, even if the arrestees are California residents. Ontario Bail Bond Store can only provide affordable bail bonds, customized payment plans, and around-the-clock friendly customer service.
