You have the right to talk to an attorney before answering any questions. You have the right to have an attorney present during the questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you without cost, if you so desire. You can exercise these rights at any time. These are the general warnings; however the sentence complexity and words may differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction (Rogers, Harrison et al; 2007). JUVENILE INTERROGATIONS Juvenile interrogations are quite different from that of the adults. In fact the whole procedure is different. A suspect of a crime, who is a juvenile i.e. under the age of eighteen, is firstly taken into a juvenile detention centre where his legal guardian is called upon. All the interrogation is to be done under the supervision of the guardian. Moreover this interrogation cannot be custodial. An interrogation is considered custodial if the arrested person feels that he is not free to leave. The definition differs in case of juveniles and adults. A twelve year old with all the school authorities present in a single room with the doors of the room closed would be considered custody. This certainly because a twelve year old would not feel free to leave because he is not as mature as an adult who will never consider it to be a custody until it is a police headquarter room. Miranda rights are not necessary to be narrated until it is a custodial interrogation.
