The Jurors were not very open to hearing every detail that Juror Eight gave to prove the boy’s innocence. He had a positive attitude that was not changing at all; he stood up for the boy even if the boy did murder his father. Juror Eight did not wait for others to defend the kid, he stood up and started the process. Bernard Roth, a Stanford professor and author of The Achievement Habit writes, “You can sit around in the dark waiting for the light to come on, or you can get up walk across the room, and flip the switch yourself” (Roth 105). This quote ties in with Twelve Angry Men because Roth is saying that a person can wait for something to happen on its own, or they can get up and do something about it.

The decision of the court was that Miranda was guilty, as a result he was sentenced to 20 to 30 years incarceration on each count.

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.
The Steinberg trial was a case where he was able to walk away as a free man, because the courts stated that he had a mental illness (Yoong, 2012). Steinberg stabbed his wife 26 times and was still able to walk away as a free man (Yoong, 2012). However, this is not always the case just cause an individual claim to be insane, they still can be charged unless it is proven by a professional (Yoong, 2012). For example, the criminal case in 1941, where the bothers robbed a payroll truck in Manhattan, and in the mix of escaping they killed a cop (Yoong, 2012). During their trial the brothers tried to prove that they were not in their right state of mind during the robbery (Yoong, 2012).
Arizona, Were his rights violated? It is obvious that Ernesto 's rights were not clear to him.

Nonetheless, it was later found out that the odontologist (forensic dental specialist) who trained this expert said, ”that there is no way his teeth could have matched marks left on the victim’s body.” Krone maintained his innocence through the trial and thought that the police were out searching for the real killer. “How could you show remorse for a crime you didn’t commit?” said Krone. Four years later, in 1996, with the help of his cousin, Jim Rix, Krone was granted an appeal for a new trial. During the retrial, DNA evidence was discovered on Kim’s body that did not match the victim’s or Krone’s DNA. Krone felt that he’d win this case for sure.
In the wake of listening to it, they flipped the tape over and found a recorded discussion in which Myers griped intensely that he was being compelled to frame McMillian, whom he didn 't have the faintest idea, for a crime neither of them had any part in. Further examination uncovered that McMillian 's had just been changed over to a "Low-rider" six months after the crime occurred, and that prosecutors had disguised data around a witness who had seen the casualty alive after the time the prosecutors asserted that McMillian had killed her. The two witnesses who had affirmed that they had seen McMillian 's truck withdrawn their affirmation, and conceded that they lied at trial. On February 23, 1993, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals turned around McMillian 's conviction and requested another trial. On March 2, 1993, prosecutors rejected charges against McMillian and he was discharged.
• Florida v. Powell - Kevin D. Powell was convicted in a Florida state court of being a felon in possession of a firearm and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Mr. Powell appealed arguing that his Miranda warning was invalid because the written form used by the Tampa police at his arrest did not explicitly indicate that he had a right to an attorney at his questioning.
