Criminal Procedure and Constitutional Rights

What happened to Miranda after the Supreme Court decision?

Prosecutors retried Miranda without evidence obtained from his confession. The prosecution presented the testimony of Miranda’s common-law wife, who claimed that during a prison visit, Miranda confessed to her that he had raped the victim. A jury convicted him again on charges of kidnapping and rape in 1966. Miranda was paroled in 1972. However, in 1976, Miranda was stabbed to death in a bar fight.
