Wednesday, March 13, 1963: Ernesto Miranda arrested

   Ernesto Miranda of Phoenix, Arizona, is questioned about a March 3 kidnapping and rape, then charged with the crimes when he signs a confession after two hours of police interrogation. From Tarlton Law Library, University of Texas Law School: He was not advised that he did not have to speak with the police and that anything he said could be used against him at trial. After conviction, he took his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, which in June 1966 ruled in favor of Miranda and outlined specific rules governing questions of suspects.
