Miranda was retried and again found guilty. At the second trial, a former girlfriend testified that he had told her about kidnapping and raping the 18-year-old in 1963. He was paroled in 1972 and was in and out of prison until he was killed in a stabbing at a bar when Miranda was 34 years old. No one was ever charged with his death (Cassell, 1998). The Impact of Miranda V. Arizona When the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the prosecution could not introduce Miranda’s confession during trial because the police had failed to inform the suspect of his right to have an attorney present and that he did not have to incriminate himself, the impact the ruling would have on the entire U.S. judicial system was only beginning to become clear.

He told me he wanted to go back to prison because he was tired of living on the streets and he had spent most of his life there. I did not spend enough time with him to determine if he was a product of not being properly supervised and not being placed in the appropriate programs or if he was given the opportunities for assistance with a job and counseling and choose not to participate.

I plead not guilty, going against what my public pretender wanted. He wanted me to plead guilty and server a lesser sentence, but I do not feel that I am guilty of murder. Murder is such a harsh sentence for self-defense. I wished someone would listen to me and dig into my case. I called my husband and he told me that him and his family are going to be getting me a new lawyer, so I actually stand a chance to get out one day.

On January 27, Nevada went to Nashville, where Johnson was identified as the assailant and was indicted for the rape of Nevada Taylor (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”). On the day of the trial, Johnson had an alibi, stating he was at the Last Chance Saloon when Nevada was raped, which was supported by many people at the saloon; however, Hixon and Nevada say that Johnson was definitely the rapist (Pfeifer, “United”; “Shipp”).
