Michael J, Esq. :

Hello - Thank you for contacting JustAnswer. My name is Michael; I look forward to helping you with your criminal problem today.

Michael J, Esq. :

The Answer is A. B is incorrect because victims are not interrogated. C is incorrect because this occurs later in the investigation. The police may not know all current suspects in the preliminary phase. D is incorrect because Miranda warnings do not have to be issued to all people questioned.

Michael J, Esq. :
