Can I be convicted if I wasn’t read my rights?

Most officers will read a suspect his or her Miranda rights when they are taking them into custody. Miranda rights will notify a suspect of their rights in the criminal investigation process. However, issuing this warning is only required when the suspect is going to be interrogated. Suspects who are not subject to interrogation are not legally required to have the Miranda warning read to them at the time they are being taken in.
