What are my rights if I'm arrested in Maryland?

If you are taken into police custody, you have the right to:


  • Know the charges against you

  • Request an attorney, including the right to have one appointed if you cannot afford one;

  • Refuse to answer police questions


The police may ask your name, address, and other routine processing questions. But before if they have you in a situation where you are not free to leave, before asking any incriminating questions the police are required to read you your Miranda Rights, meaning they must tell you that  you have a right to remain silent; that any statement you make may be used as evidence against you; and that you have a right to speak with a lawyer and, if you wish, to have a lawyer present when you are being questioned.
