What are Miranda Rights?

Miranda Rights are constitutional rights that must be read to every person following an arrest if the police are planning to hold you in custodial interrogation. A person is considered to be in custodial interrogation if he or she is in the presence of law enforcement (i.e., at the police station) and is not free to go.
