In Legal Terms: Miranda Rights

From MPB Think Radio, this In Legal Terms, the show all about you and your rights.              Our host is Professor Richard Gershon of the University Of Mississippi School Of Law.    

You’ve heard on tv and in the movies – you have the right to remain silent, you have the right to an attorney. But what does that really mean? What rights do you have if you are arrested? We’ll learn from former sheriff’s deputy and current attorney Francis Springer from The Springer Law firm.

The American Civil Liberties Union has a printable list of what you should and should not do if you’re stopped by the police, if the police come to your door, or if you’re arrested. You might want to read this now because you won’t have time when you need the knowledge!

We’re talking with attorney Francis Springer, this time about your Miranda Rights. But if you’d like to listen to past episodes, on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 we talked about Easements and Roads

and on on Tue, Dec 8, 2020 our subject was Administrative Law
