(Paddock) He was identified by the victim of the crime in a police lineup. After he was identified, he was taken into police interrogation for two hours. When he was arrested, he was not informed of his Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate himself.
Facts: Defendant Ernesto Miranda was arrested and taken to the Arizona Police Department on suspicion rape, kidnapping and robbing an 18-year-old woman. After he was interrogated by two detectives for over two hours, Miranda signed a written confession admitting to rape and kidnapping.  At trial, Miranda’s verbal and written confession was presented to the jury. Miranda was found guilty and sentenced to 20-30 years on each count.

In addition, he was not told that everything that he said could be used against him.

The Supreme Court has practically abandoned the underlying principle of the Miranda decision, that custodial police interrogation is inherently coercive, and has carved out many exceptions to the Miranda exclusionary rule. Consequently, a violation of the Miranda ruling does not necessarily mean that the resulting statement will be inadmissible. The Supreme Court has made it clear that the Miranda warnings are not constitutionally required but are only prophylactic rules designed to protect a suspect's right against compelled self-incrimination.
