Miranda’s rights is an example of how the fifth and sixth amendments changed criminal law. These rights, read at every arrest, were developed due to a case known as Miranda vs. Arizona (Taylor, 2015). This case was heard by the Supreme Court in 1966 (Taylor, 2015). The Supreme Court proposed prior to anyone being questioned, he/she had the right to remain silent, anything said will be used against them in the court of law, and they have the right to an attorney, if an individual cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed.

Miranda 's case won 5-4 and a statement was made. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote this : “The person in custody must, prior to interrogation, be clearly informed that he has the right to remain silent, and that anything he says will be used against him in court; he must be clearly informed that he has the right to consult with a lawyer and to have the lawyer with him during interrogation, and that, if he is indigent, a lawyer will be appointed to represent him.” The court set aside his conviction. After a second trial, Miranda 's confession from the previous trial were thrown out. However he was convicted again and was sentenced up to thirty years in federal prison.
