  • Miranda v. Arizona (1966)
  • During this case, the question of whether the 5th amendment applies to criminals under interrogation, came into question. 
  • Ernesto Miranda, you're under arrest for kidnapping and rape!
  • Miranda was interrogated without an attorney present.
  • Did you kidnap this women?
  • Two hours later... the police obtained a written confession.
  • ...
  • During trial, the police admitted they had not given him an attorney and still proceeded to use the confession as evidence
  • No, we did not inform him of his right to an attorney
  • I object!
  • Miranda's lawyer protested but the confession was still admitted  and allowed in the trial. Miranda was found guilty of all charges.
  • Guilty!
  • On appeal, the court upheld his rights hadn't been violated because he hadn't specfically asked for an attorney.
  • I uphold my original ruling.
  • Afterwards, it was determined that the 5th amendment applied to all cases and evidence can't be used in trial unless the defendant is aware of all of his rights, including the right to stay silent.
  • Stop! You're under arrest! You have the right to remain silent!
