Ok, the Supreme Court say you have to be informed as to your rights to keep your mouth shut and have a lawyer. Exactly when the police have to do it isn't as clear cut. That said If you knew you had a right to an attorney just ask. There's no requirement you got to be informed of your rights be fore you can ask. So while you might get your statement suppressed. It would have been easier to just shut up.
