The West Covina sheriff knows you have rights. If the sheriff arrests you for any reason, he is required to inform you of those rights. They include your right to remain silent and to have an attorney present. If the West Covina sheriff does not tell you about these rights (known as your Miranda Rights), things you tell him may not be admissible in court later.

You should always have an attorney present before answering any question the sheriff asks you. A qualified attorney who is experienced in criminal law can help you understand the charges against you and let you know just what you should say to law-enforcement officials. The information you provide the sheriff at the beginning of the booking process can make a big difference in the ultimate outcome of your case.
