Know Your Legal Rights
- You are presumed innocent: Every person charged with a crime is presumed innocent. The state prosecutors have to make their case, and you do not have to assist them in any way.
- You have the right to be free from unreasonable search and seizures: If law enforcement violates this right, any evidence they recover can be kept out of court.
- You can only be arrested upon probable cause: If you are arrested for a crime and probable cause does not exist, then all evidence recovered as a result of the arrest must be kept out of court.
- You have guaranteed constitutional rights that must be respected: Among others, your rights include the right to counsel, the right to confront all witnesses against you, and the right to be free from excessive fines or punishment.
