A Brief History of Miranda Rights
Posted By The Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Grass || 17-Nov-2015
When developing strategies for your defense, one of the factors your criminal defense attorney may consider is whether the arresting officers followed proper protocol. Officers are required to inform you of your Miranda rights, which were established after the case of Miranda v. Arizona in 1966. Ernesto Miranda was convicted of kidnapping and rape. However, the conviction was overturned because he was never informed of his legal rights prior to signing a confession.
