    Ernesto Miranda did it. There was no question. He confessed. His confession included a statement acknowledging that he was aware of his rights. But no one told him what those rights were. How do you know what you don't know? In Miranda v. Arizona, the Supreme Court would overturn his conviction and say that Miranda's Constitutional rights had been violated in obtaining the confession.

    Join siblings Tom and Chris as we break down the case and remind you why a strong criminal defense is paramount to receiving a fair trial.

    Chris is a lifelong true crime fan. Her brother, Tom is a criminal defense attorney. Chris loves to tell him about interesting cases and get his legal insights.
