Miranda Rights Miranda v. Arizona By: Chace Jackson What the 5th amendment means? The 5th amendment gives us the right to give ourselves privacy from police officers. Officers will need a warrant or your consent to search your belongings. This amendment also allows anyone to not be put on trial twice for the same offense, which is also known as 'Double Jeopardy'. Lastly it lets you have your rights of life, liberty, and property to where no one can take anything from you without due process. This case was ruled in favor of Miranda 5-4 by the Supreme Court. This case came in to play because of a man named Ernesto Miranda, he was charged with rape, kidnapping, and robbery. He was interrogated for 2 hours by police but was never informed of his Rights. At first Miranda was sentenced to 20-30 years in prison, but he appealed it to the supreme court and the Chief Justice ruled that the prosecution could not introduce Miranda's confession as evidence in the trial, because he was never read his rights.
