Criminal Defendants Rights

Nashville Criminal Defense Attorney

criminal defendants rights in tennessee

Being arrested is an extremely intense, mortifying action taken by the police: you are cuffed, confined, and imprisoned with no oversight until the following day when you are brought before a judge in the Court system.

Fortunately, you do have intrinsic constitutional rights!

Firstly, the event of your arrest does not inherently imply that you are guilty of a crime.

Next, you reserve the privilege to have a lawyer at all crucial phases of the court procedures; until you talk a lawyer, DO NOT talk to the police!

In conclusion, you reserve the option to make a bond and be released from prison. 

In the event that you are arrested, DON’T talk to the police! Talk with one of our criminal legal advisors first! 

Instead, you should promptly contact our emergency phone number:

Your Rights During a Criminal Arrest

In the event that you have been arrested and issued with a criminal charge, or whenever confined and given a misdemeanor citation, you have the accompanying constitutional rights, or the Miranda rights:

The right to remain silent; anything you say can and will be used against you in a Court of law;

You have a right to an attorney, and to have the attorney present during questioning

If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.

Rights at Preliminary Hearings

Under U.S. law, you have inalienable rights that date effectively back to the initial confirmation of the U.S. Constitution, which offers the Sixth Amendment: 

“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.”
