Ernesto Miranda V Arizona

The case began in 1963 with the arrest of Ernesto Miranda, a Phoenix resident.  He was charged with rape, kidnapping, and robbery. Miranda allegedly confessed to committing the crimes but wasn't informed of his rights during the police interrogation.  He was released because he wasn't read the Miranda rights.
