FOOD FOR THOUGHT

You have a right to remain silent. Anything you say will and shall be held against you in the court of law. You have a right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to represent you.” This is known as Miranda Warnings. The Miranda Warnings guarantee an individual in police custody a right to remain silent and a right to an attorney. If you are arrested or subject to a police investigation, assert these rights, remain silent, and ask for an attorney. Do not make a verbal or written statement without first talking with your lawyer.

When a criminal charge is pending against you, you need to a competent attorney. That attorney is Ella
A. Hughes. The right representation can be the difference between a guilty or not guilty verdict.
