Synopsis

Miranda Rights by Paul Ruschmann

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and probably will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney... The famous Miranda warnings became part of the common lexicon after the Supreme Court decision in Miranda v. Arizona in 1966. Yet it remains controversial to this day. This book examines both sides of Miranda-related questions: Is the Miranda decision a violation of separation of powers or the concept of federalism? Does making mandatory the reading of the rules free guilty criminals? Do the warnings affect the validity of confessions? With excerpts from court cases, legislative statutes, and opinions by political commentators and legal scholars alike, Miranda Rights will spark discussion as it highlights resources that will help students form educated opinions.
