What does Waive Your Rights mean?

Certain rights are granted to individuals either by the Constitution or by state and federal law. Suspects who wish to waive their rights are voluntarily agreeing to relinquish their right which has been granted to them. Suspects may commonly waive their right to a preliminary hearing, waive their right to a speedy trial or waive their Miranda Rights.

Suspects who waive their right to a preliminary hearing are admitting they know there is probable cause that they committed the crime. Suspects who waive their right to a speedy trial do not expect the trial to commence within the specific timeframe outlined under the law, and suspects who waive their Miranda Rights understand that they do not have to talk and they are allowed to have an attorney present, but they are choosing to talk to law enforcement officers and risk self-incrimination.
