You absolutely have rights; rights that should be protected above all else. Upon arrest, you should be read your Miranda Rights, denoting that you have the right to remain silent until you retain an attorney to speak on your behalf. This is something we strongly suggest you take into consideration. Do not speak unless you have to, and even then be careful what you say as anything you say after arrest could be held against you in a court of law. No one should force a statement out of you, not the police, not medical professionals, no one. You should be treated with respect and decency throughout the entire process, from the point of your arrest until the final arraignment.
