Miranda! You are being arrested on charges of kidnap, rape, and robbery.
AFTER TWO HOURS, MIRANDA SIGNED CONFESSION WITHOUT USING HIS 5TH AND 6TH AMENDMENT
I know you did it, you have no right to keep silent. Don't deny your crime. Admit it!
Where are my rights?
TWO WEEKS LATER
Why doesn't he have rights of protection against self-incrimination and legal counsel?
MIRANDA WAS CONVICTED OF KIDNAPPING AND RAPE, HE RECEIVED A 20-YEAR SENTENCE.
My conviction was faulty, I need a new trial!!!
THE COURT VOTED TO OVERTURN MIRANDA'S CONVICTION BY A 5-4 MARGIN.
SUMMARY Ernesto Miranda was arrested at his home in Phoenix, Arizona for kidnapping and rape. When he got to the police station, he was not advised of his right to remain silent nor his right to an attorney. After two hours in interrogation, he signed a written confession and at his trial was sentences to 20 to 30 years in prison. The Court accepted the case to clarify the specific rights of an individual in police custody.
