In Miranda v. Arizona (1966), the Supreme Court held that under the Fifth and Sixth Amendments of the Constitution, any statements made as a result of custodial interrogation may be admissible in trial only if the government can demonstrate that the defendant: (1) was informed prior to the interrogation of his or her right to consult an attorney and right against self-incrimination; (2) understood these rights; and (3) voluntarily waived these rights.
