The Miranda case came to the SCOTUS in 1966. In a 5-4 ruling it was determined that LEO must specify certain rights (remain silent, lawyer, ect). The case began on 13 Mar 63 when Miranda sexuality assaulted a 17 year old girl. After having the original conviction thrown out, Miranda was retried in 1967 - he was sentenced to 20-30 years. He was paroled in 1972. After his release, he returned to his neighborhood and made a living by autographing "Miranda Cards" given to suspects. On 31 Jan 78, Miranda was stabbed to death at a bar. Did the SCOTUS make a good decision back in 1966?
