What are the Miranda Rights that should be read?

Every law enforcement agency may create its own version of the Miranda Rights.  The basic information that should be provided a suspect / defendant is:
You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law.
You have the right to speak to an attorney.
If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.
Do you understand these rights as they have been read to you?
Many law enforcement agencies will have the suspect sign a form acknowledging the Miranda advisement.
