VIOLATIONS OF MIRANDA 2
The Miranda warning is also referred to as the Miranda rights in the United States.
Miranda warning is a silent warning issued by the police to criminal suspects under police
detention. Miranda warning can still be issued by the police to criminals who are under
interrogation while in the custody. The interrogation is done to preserve the admissibility of the
statement which is to be used against them in criminal case. Within the requirements set by the
United State states that prior to the arrest of a suspect, the suspect must be told that he/she has
the right to be silent, right to legal counsel. The suspect has the right to be told that anything
he/she says can be used against the suspect in the case. If the suspect confesses to the police, then
prosecution has to prove to the judge that the accused was informed of his rights and violated his
rights knowingly; all these should be done before the confession is introduced to the defendant’s
trial (FindLaw, 2016).
From the incident, the suspect’s rights are violated by the police officers who failed to tell
share on Miranda warning. The officer should have told him that the information he is giving
voluntarily will be used in court against him. Another right that he was denied is access to legal
counsel and the right to keep silent. In this case, the police did not follow any rule within
Miranda. After the suspect is arrested and taken to the police station, the police officer was to
read out the Miranda rules to the defendant but instead, he is interrogated and confesses his acts.
This is a violation of the defendant’s rights (Prentzas, 2006, p. 12).
In this case, the matter is in line with theMissouri v. Seibertcase where the suspect is only
with the Miranda warnings after being arrested. In this case I do not agree with the court’s
admissibility of statements made by the suspect because the police officers failed to serve the
suspect with the Miranda rule before being arrested. In this case, the suspect is onlyservedwith
