Stuart interviewed on Arizona Horizon
, Senior Policy Advisor at the College of Law, was interviewed on “Arizona Horizon” on March 7, about the history of “Miranda Rights” and the Miranda Warning.
March 13 marked the 50th anniversary of the case of Ernesto Miranda, who was arrested for rape, kidnapping and robbery in Phoenix without being informed of any of his rights.
Stuart, who has written a book on the case, said the U.S. Supreme Court was actively looking for a case to bring attention to suspect rights.
“It was always the law that suspects had the right to remain silent, the right to a lawyer, the right to not be interrogated,” Stuart said. “The problem was, most people didn’t know that.”
