Your Miranda rights: a few very important sentences

Even if you don't know them by their legal term, you know that the following sentences grant you some very important rights during an arrest: "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say or do can be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney, and if you can't afford one, an attorney will be appointed to you."

Don't forget: you have the right to a speedy trial
