Show Summary Details


The Supreme Court has decided more than 50 appeals relevant to its Miranda ruling since 1966. Though not completely so, the bulk of these decisions has been to restrict the situations and behaviors for which law enforcement officials are required to give the warnings or are require to honor the response of the suspect. This chap6ter describes four cases that restricted rights in several ways, including permitting police to alter the wording of Miranda rights and permitting them to continue questioning when the defendant makes an ambiguous response regarding the desired presence of an attorney.
