American criminal, a labourer whose conviction on kidnapping, rape, and armed robbery charges based on his confession under police interrogation was set aside in the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case Miranda v. Arizona, which ruled that criminal suspects must be informed of their right against self-incrimination and their right to consult with an attorney before being questioned by police. This warning is known as a Miranda warning.

After the Supreme Court decision set aside Miranda's initial conviction, the state of Arizona retried him. At the second trial, with his confession excluded from evidence, he was again convicted. He was sentenced to 20 to 30 years in prison.

Miranda was paroled in 1972. After his release, he started selling autographed Miranda warning cards for $1.50. Over the next few years, Miranda was arrested numerous times for minor driving offences and eventually lost the privilege to drive a car. He was arrested for the possession of a gun but the charges were dropped. However, because this violated his parole he was sent back to Arizona state prison for another year.

On 31 January 1976, after his release for violating his parole, a violent fight broke out in a bar in Phoenix, Arizona. Miranda received a lethal wound from a knife.
