When do police have to read me my rights for a DUI case in Florida?
Return to FAQ Videos
The police have to read you your DUI rights in the state of Florida when it comes to DUI case in two instances. If there’s a crash involved, then law enforcement is required to do the crash investigation first to investigate how the crash happened, and then after the crash investigation if they are beginning a DUI investigation, then they have to read you your Miranda rights in order to begin the DUI investigation and in order to use any statements against you. If there’s not a crash involved, then Miranda is not required until after you’re arrested. If you’re arrested for a DUI that doesn’t involve a crash, if the cops ask you any questions after you’re arrested that involve have you been drinking, how much have you had to drink, things like that, then Miranda rights are required.
