What are Miranda rights or Miranda warnings?

Miranda rights are the 5th Amendment rights that attach to any sort of interaction that someone has with law enforcement, so when Miranda is read at the beginning of a police interaction, police will actually tell you, you have a right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. That comes down from a case, which was Miranda v. Arizona, a very famous US Supreme Court case, and what it essentially does is it protects someone’s rights in terms of a custodial interrogation with police. It ensures that they are aware that they have certain rights, as far as a right to remain silent, as well as a right to an attorney.
