The purpose of interrogation is to elicit incriminating statements, admissions, and perhaps a full confession in order to prove the defendant’s guilt. A defendant’s own words that he committed the crime is very persuasive to a jury in proving a defendant’s guilt. In this presentation we will discuss what prosecutors must do to get a defendant’s confession admitted into evidence.  The Miranda decision is almost 50 years old and at that time was a groundbreaking case that limited how the police could question a defendant.  However, lately there have numerous decisions interpreting and limiting this decision. In this interactive class we will review the Fifth Amendment, the Miranda decision, and the latest Miranda cases from the United States Supreme Court.  Prosecutors will learn the key essentials on whether Miranda applies to an interrogation by the police and how to argue that a statement should not be suppressed.
