When cops take a suspect into custody, they must recite them their Miranda rights. When a suspect who is only being interrogated incriminates himself, he may subsequently claim that he was in detention and attempt to have the case dismissed on the basis that he was not informed of his Miranda rights. In such circumstances, a judge must decide whether or not a reasonable person would have considered himself to be in custody, depending on a set of factors. The judge must evaluate if the suspect was interrogated in a threatening manner (for example, if the subject was seated while both policemen remained on their feet) and whether the suspect was aware that he or she had the right to leave at any time.
