After the Supreme Court decision set aside Miranda’s initial conviction, the state of Arizona tried him again. At the second trial, with his confession excluded from evidence, he was convicted. He was sentenced to 20-30 years in prison.
Miranda was paroled in 1972. After his release, he started selling autographed Miranda warning cards for $1.50. In a bit of irony, the man who stabbed Ernesto twice was read his Miranda rights and upon release for lack of evidence, fled to Mexico and was never heard from again.
As the popular comedian Ron White once said, “I had the right to remain silent … but I didn’t have the ability.”
