Loraine & Associates | Garrity Rights Attorney | Osage Beach, MO

A landmark US Supreme Court case in 1967 established what are know today as ‘Garrity Rights.’ The legal precedent was established after Bellmawr, New Jersey police chief Edward Garrity and five other public employees were threatened with job termination if they refused to answer questions that could have been incriminating. Six years later the US Supreme Court ruled that these kinds of termination threats regarding public employee statements were in fact a flagrant violation of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to The US Constitution.

In many ways, Garrity rights are akin to Miranda rights for the public employees who are protected by them. But it is important to note that it’s entirely up to the public employee to declare their Garrity rights. Every public employee should be aware of this. If an employer is engaging in leading questions or demands that you answer questions that could pertain to criminal conduct, your Garrity rights should go into effect; assert your rights and contact Tom Loraine, an experienced Garrity rights attorney in Osage Beach, MO. The US Constitution protects you from ever answering any questions which could incriminate yourself, so know your rights and don’t be bullied.

Contact Tom Loraine at Loraine & Associates today. Get a Garrity rights attorney who is aware of the law’s nuances and can protect you. In Osage Beach, MO, get Tom Loraine—tested, experienced, and a track record of winning
