Miranda Laws: Minnick v. Mississippi
Constitutional law professor William Greenhalgh talked about the Supreme Court case Minnick v. Mississippi and compared and contrasted it to Edwards v. Arizona of 1981. Both cases deal with the Miranda rights of defendants. Dr. Greenhalgh explained that in the Minnick case, the Court decided no interrogation can take place without the presence of counsel unless the accused expressly waives that right. He cited that Minnick differed from Edwards because in Edwards that protection ended as soon as an attorney is provided. close
