Miranda II: Assertion of the Rights, Exceptions, and Other Limits
This lesson is the second lesson reviewing Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966). This lesson explores issues relating to the assertions by a suspect of the rights provided by Miranda--the right to silence and the right to an attorney prior to questioning; the application of the exclusionary rule to violations of Miranda; and exceptions to and limits on the Miranda rule.
Another lesson, Miranda I, reviews the reasoning and holding of Miranda; examines the issues of custody and interrogation--the two "triggers" set forth by the Court for when the protections become available to a suspect; and explores what constitutes a waiver of the protections of Miranda. Although the lessons can be completed in any order, it may be helpful to complete Miranda I before moving on to Miranda II.
