7) Landmark Case: “Miranda vs. Arizona” Miranda appealed his case to the highest court in Arizona. His attorney argued the confession should not have been used as evidence because; Miranda had not been informed of his rights, and no attorney had been present to assist him during his interrogation.

9) Supreme Court rules in favor of Miranda; his conviction is overturned Supreme Court said: Miranda was NOT read his rights by the officers No attorney (lawyer) was present while he was being interrogated (questioned) by police because Miranda was never told he had the right to a lawyer
10. Miranda vs. Arizona ruling led to Miranda Rights Police officers have to read Miranda rights out loud to anyone being arrested and/or interrogated (questioned by police)
You have the right to remain silent and refuse to answer questions. Anything you do say may be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police and to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you before any questioning if you wish. If you decide to answer questions now without an attorney present you will still have the right to stop answering at any time until you talk to an attorney. Knowing and understanding your rights as I have explained them to you, are you willing to answer my questions without an attorney present?

While he was in jail waiting for his trial, a New York undercover officer was placed in Benny’s cell. Before the officer asked any questions, Benny said that he had robbed the cab driver. Benny’s statement was used against him at trial, despite his objection that he was not read his Miranda Rights, in violation of the Fifth Amendment. Should a judge allow this confession in court?
