A person can invoke their 5th amendment right to remain silent at any point they determine is appropriate. Once the right has been invoked, any further answers to police questioning is determined to be a waiver of that right. In other words, the police, prosecution and the Supreme Court don't decide when the right to remain silent is invoked and questioning ends, the individual does.
This is why I advocate for people not to talk to law enforcement, period.
Keep in mind the courts, prosecutors and police don't give you rights, you are born with unalienable rights, the Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution.
