Transcript of Miranda v. Arizona

MIRANDA V. ARIZONA Summary Effects 1963 In 1963, Ernesto Miranda was arrested, taken into custody, and charged with rape, kidnapping, and robbery. The police then interrogated him for two hours and Miranda ended up writing a signed confession. During his trial this confession was presented. He was found guilty of kidnapping and rape and was sentenced to 20-30 years of imprisonment on each count. He appealed to the Arizona Supreme Court because his confession was gathered unconstitutionally. The court disagreed with this and Miranda followed up by appealing to the U.S Supreme Court which reviewed the case in 1966. A 5-4 decision said that prosecution could not use Miranda’s confession as evidence because they did not inform him of his right to an attorney and against self-incrimination. 1965 1966 1964 1967 On March 13, 1963 Ernesto Miranda was arrested.
