“They didn’t read my my rights”

July 27, 2010

I get this question alot. How come when I was arrested, the police didn’t read me my rights? Many people believe that the arrest itself requires the reading of your rights. This is not correct. The reading of your miranda rights is required when (1) you are in custody, meaning you’re not free to leave, and (2) the police are going to ask you questions. Unless both apply, the rights don’t need to be read.

People accused of crimes in Naples, Florida who have a mental illness now have a new option to resolve criminal cases.  Mental Health Court is now up and running.   MHC is an alternative to jail for people who are suffering from mental illness.  I will post more information about the MHC in another blog, including the criteria for entering.
