Being charged with a crime can be one of the most stressful events that you can go through and knowing your rights can make all the difference. Regardless of whether you are being charged with a felony or a misdemeanor, your legal rights are the same.
Arguably, one of the most important and well-known rights is the right to remain silent. Those individuals who have been charged with a crime do not have to answer any questions posed to them about the case or charges. If, however, one decides to waive that right, anything that one says will be on the record and can and most probably will be used against him or her.
