At the scene of a crime, a police officer question witnesses about the details of a holdup. The officer suspects that some of the witnesses are connected with a crime. How does the Miranda decision apply in such an instance?
If the interview happens in a cell, at the scene of a crime, on a downtown highway, or on an open ground is not important; regardless of venue, the facts remain the same when in jail, they must be read their Miranda privileges if they are to be allowed to respond and use them in the courts. In comparison, the prosecution cannot use any of the suspect's statements at trial, since it is usually inadmissible to do so as to breach the suspect's privileges.
