A digest of twenty one (21) significant US Supreme Court decisions interpreting Miranda (1968 – 2012). In Miranda v. Arizona, the US Supreme Court rendered one of its most seminal and important opinions regarding the application of the fifth and sixth amendments of the United States Constitution in criminal cases. In a 5-4 decision, the Court held that any statements made by a person in response to interrogation while in police custody will be admissible at trial only if the prosecution can show that the Defendant was informed of the right to consult with an attorney before and during questioning and of the right against self incrimination prior to questioning by the police.
