Scott R. Tischler, a current law student, discusses the 2 new rights when being arrested.
1. It is wise not to discuss a case with the police. An attorney is the only party that should discuss any case with the police. Police will try to get a confession out of anyone they arrest. Remember it is better to say nothing and let an attorney do the talking. If the police are about to arrest an individual or have already arrested someone, there is no such thing as a 'friendly chat' to sort things out. Everything said during an arrest will be used against the party. It is best to plead the fifth and be silent.
2. Search and Seizure. Police can not in most situations search a home with out a proper warrant. Often times a police officer will invite himself in or ask permission to search your home or personals. The answer should be either a simple no, or call an attorney and have the attorney handle the issue regarding a search warrant. The home is typically very well protected against search or seizure with out a warrant. A car, on the other hand, is not. Any vehicle that is moving, can be searched with probable cause. The best thing to do if asked by an officer to search a vehicle, is to call an attorney and make sure the constitutional rights are protected for all individuals.
