Miranda v. Arizona
Citation:384 U.S. 436, 10 Ohio Misc. 9, 86 S.Ct. 1602, 16 L.Ed.2d 694.
In March 1963, Miranda was arrested in his home and taken into custody at a Phoenix police station. He was then questioned by two police officers in “Interrogation Room No. 2.” After two hours of interrogation, the officers obtained a written confession signed by Miranda. The top of the confession contained a typed paragraph stating the confession was voluntarily-made, without threats or promises of immunity and “with full knowledge of [Miranda’s] legal rights, understanding any statement [made] may be used against [him].” This written confession was admitted into evidence at trial and the interrogating officers testified to Miranda’s oral confession as well.
