When do the police have to read me my rights in Florida?

In the State of Florida, Miranda rights, which are the typical rights that someone thinks of as far as a right to remain silence, a right to an attorney, those attach at the point when someone is in custodial detention, meaning that they have been detained by police, they are not free to leave, and they are being asked questions which could incriminate them. At any point someone is sitting in custodial detention or held in custodial detention by police, that is the time at which Miranda rights, which are the right to remain silent, right to an attorney, right to have an attorney pointed for you if you cannot afford one, those will apply at that point in time.
