Arizona 1996 Ernesto Miranda was arrested for robbery, rape, and kidnapping. Ernesto wasn't a native English speaker and didn't understand the police or what they were asking him. While they were interrogating Ernesto, he confessed to all the crimes. During the trial, Miranda didn't get a layer or access to counsel. He was sentenced to 20 to 30 years in prison. Miranda appealed to the Supreme Court, saying that the police obtained the confessionunconstitutionally and denied him access to counsel. The Supreme Court accepted and voted 5-4 in favor of Miranda. The court said that not only did the first court violate Ernesto's sixth amendment right, they also violated his fifth amendment right by not informing him properly of his rights and makinghim be a witness against himself. This case affects whoever has been put under arrest because it created the 'Miranda Rights' which is what the police have to tell you when you get put under arrest. It also put an emphasis on sixth and fifth amendment rights. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”
