What are Miranda rights?

Your Miranda rights came out of a Supreme Court Case Miranda v. Arizona. In this case a man gave his confession to police without legal advice or aid. Later, in investigations, it was found that the man was intimidated into giving a guilty confession. After this case, it was put into law that anyone being arrested for any crime should be told their Miranda rights. These rights remind the person that they do not have to talk to the police until they get a lawyer, and warn that anything they say can be used in court.
