Donald Trump's indictment means that even though he is the first former president of the United States to be charged with a crime, he will be treated – to some degree, anyway – just like any other defendant in the criminal justice system.

When he is arrested, Trump will be read his rights, known as a Miranda warning, including how he has the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney and that what he says can be used against him in a court of law.
