Miranda Exibit

In the late evening hours of March 3rd, 1963 a young Phoenix woman was kidnapped, brutally raped and robbed while walking from a bus stop. 10 days later, on March 13th, 1963, Ernesto Arturo Miranda was arrested by Phoenix Police for the assault. These events set in motion a series of court hearings which resulted in a United States Supreme Court decision that would forever identify the relationship between law enforcement and those suspected of crimes not only in the United States but in many countries around the world!
