  • On March 13, 1963, in Phoenix, Arizona, Ernesto Miranda was arrested for the abduction and rape of an 18 year old woman after the victim's cousin identified the license plate of his vehicle. 
  • That's his vehicle.
  • He is then placed under arrest.
  • You are under arrest.
  • Ernesto Miranda is then interrogated for two hours unaware of his right to have a lawyer present guaranteed under the 6th amendment. He then admits to the crime by signing a written statement.
  • Yes, yes I did.
  • Soo...uh...you committed the crime right?
  • His written statement was used as sole evidence against him in the Arizona court.
  • In his own words, he confessed to the crime.
  • But your Honor, he was not informed of his right to a having a lawyer present
  • Well sorry criminal scum, you said you did it. Whether you would have had a lawyer or not, you're guilty dude.
  • His lawyer, Alvin Moore, then appealed to the Arizona Supreme Court but there too, his written statement was used against him. 
  • Dang Ernie. We gotta go to the U.S. Supreme Court now.
  • The Supreme Court ruled that detained suspects, prior to police questioning, must be informed of their constitutional right to an attorney and are protected against self-incrimination.
  • We did it Ernie! Justice is served!
