If you are arrested
Do not speak to law enforcement officers until you have talked with an attorney. You have the right to remain silent and you have the right to an attorney. Once taken into custody a peace officer is required by law to read you these rights (Miranda Rights). The only thing you need to say is that you want to talk to an attorney. At this point pay attention to everything happening but it is wise to not make any comments as anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
