The Role of Interrogation in Juvenile Justice
The popular image of the interrogation of a criminal suspect probably derives in large part from television dramas. It begins with a police officer frisking a suspect who is leaning forward against an auto with his arms and legs spread wide, while another officer mechanically reads aloud the Miranda warnings: “You do not have to make a statement and have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You are entitled to consult with an attorney before interrogation and to have an attorney present during the interrogation. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.”1
