May 1st is Law Day! Know your rights!
The wording that is used when an individual is read the Miranda Warning, aka ‘Mirandized,’ is clear and direct:
“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?” MirandaWarning.org
In honor of this years theme, Miranda: More Than Words, our volunteer judges will be presenting a mock trial for our volunteers at the Comanche County Courthouse this Thursday, May 5th, in lieu of court sessions. This is an awesome opportunity and we are extremely grateful!
