Your Rights as a Suspect Legal Brief

The Mentor - A Comprehensive Guide to Army Counseling and Leadership

This is Your Rights as a Suspect Legal Brief. Know your rights if you are suspected of committing a crime, what to expect, and how to respond effectively! If you are taken in by MPs, CID agents, or called to a police station and advised of your rights, you are a suspect. You may be a suspect through rumors, or if you are implicated in a matter being investigated by the police or your unit. This guide prepares you to talk to a defense attorney. This does not replace advice from an attorney! The Topics covered are as follows:

  • Basic rule…keep your mouth shut!
  • Your rights
    • Right to remain silent and searches
    • Right to counsel
    • Lineups
  • What to expect
  • Legal tactics
  • Illegal tactics
  • Other considerations
  • When you exercise your rights
  • After the investigation
  • Do’s and don’ts
