Miranda rights Miranda warning
Notes:
The list of rights may vary by state. Typically it is something like:

"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to have an attorney present during questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you."

It is the officer’s responsibility to assure the suspect understands each of the rights.

In California, Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico, non-US citizens must also be told "If you are not a United States citizen, you may contact your country’s consulate prior to any questioning."

The requirement of reading Miranda rights to suspects was mandated in 1966 via Miranda v. Arizona.
