When do the police have to read me my rights in Pennsylvania?

Return to Video FAQs


That’s an interesting question. The police have to read you your rights in Pennsylvania, what are known as your Miranda Rights. Your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney and your right to have nothing you say used against you. You’re entitled to those rights when you are in police custody and being questioned by the police. If you have just a simple police interaction, you’re not entitled to those rights. But once you become in a custodial setting and are interrogated by the police, they have to read you your rights.
