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.

He is said to have boasted to a person in jail saying that he hurt Sam Sheppard during the fight (www.murderpedia.org).

The court felt that the government was discriminating against Arkansas Times based upon their content, which goes against the First Amendment.
