Your Rights are Important

An arrest is a seizure under both the United States Constitution, and the Oregon Constitution, and an officer must have probable cause that you have committed a crime. The legal concept of probable cause has both a subjective and an objective component. An officer must subjectively believe that you have committed a crime, and his belief must be objectively reasonable under the circumstances.

The basic things that you need to know about criminal defense if you are charged:. When arrested, you are read your rights - "Miranda rights"- which include the right to be silent, the right to remain silent, and that anything you say will be used against you in court; you must be clearly informed that you have the right to consult with an attorney and to have that attorney present during questioning.
