Ernesto Miranda was brought to trial for robbery and rape in 1963. However, a key piece of evidence—his confession—had been given before Miranda had been informed of his rights, including the right to not incriminate himself. Although convicted, his case was appealed, and in 1966, Miranda v. Arizona was heard by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled that suspects must be informed of their rights, and therefore the evidence used to convict Miranda was invalid. The state of Arizona retried & convicted Miranda for both his crimes in 1967.
