A: You are charged with very serious felony crimes and need to represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney. That said, the fact that you were not read your Miranda rights will not invalidate your arrest. Miranda rights are necessary if the police question/interrogate you while you are in custody. Again, you should consult with a lawyer.
