Ernesto Miranda was taken into custody (in his own house) and interrogated without being told of his rights (one being the right to consult his attorney). He ended up pleading guilty, even though he hadn't been completely informed of his rights of the fifth amendment.
Ernesto Miranda was arrested in his home and accused for a crime
CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTION - Does the Fifth Amendment’s protection against self-incrimination extend to the police interrogation of a suspect?
Miranda v. Arizona 2/27/66-3/1/66
Ernesto doesn't know his rights!
He didn't know his rights of the fifth amendment and that his words would be used against him later in a trial
I didn't know they'd use my words against me! I incriminated myself!
We don't stand a chance!
The police used his account to accuse him, and Ernesto was convicted
I don't think you aren't guilty, but you deserve to know your rights to a lawyer and to remain silent during police interrogation!
Ernesto's lawyer called the United States court, who decided to take on the case
Thus the Miranda Warning was born! Now all citizens taken into custody are notified and reminded of their rights so as not to incriminate themselves!
