If the police don't read me my rights, does that mean my charges are dismissed?

Not in most cases. This is a common misconception. If the police do not read you your rights it may only mean that the evidence gathered during an initial interrogation will not be able to be used as evidence against you. If a police officer did not read you your rights when you were arrested, contact an attorney to discover the full implications of the police officer's error.
