Doesn't the police officer need to read me my Miranda rights when placing me under arrested?

 

A: This is a common question, and a common misunderstanding. Actually, for a DUI, there are two conditions that must be met before the officer is required to read you your Miranda rights. The first is that you are placed under arrest. The second—which most people don’t know—is that the officer continues to interrogate you. But if these two conditions are met, and the officer still doesn’t read you your rights, a qualified DUI attorney can make sure that anything you said is excluded from evidence. For more information on the Miranda requirement for DUI arrests, read the article DUI and Your Miranda Rights.
