Hello

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard?

Why was he arrested? Was it on a warrant?

Thank you.

The police only need to read Miranda warnings when they are going to interrogate. That can be done once a suspect is in their custody and transported. Once in the interview process, the suspect should be given his Miranda right to remain silent. If the suspect is not, then anything that is said to the police is arguable inadmissible as evidence.

But the fact that rights are not read at the time of arrest is not a valid reason to have a matter dismissed, unfortunately.

Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification. Otherwise a positive rating ensures I get credit for my time and information in this regard.
