Gary Stuart, Esq., author of the book Miranda:  The Story of America's Right to Remain Silent, will speak this Friday, October 29, in Room 139 at the College of Law on the story behind the Miranda decision, and the Miranda decision's implications for terrorism cases. In Miranda: The Story of America's Right to Remain Silent, author Gary L. Stuart, who personally knows many of the key Miranda figures, examines the case facts and development of the defense's arguments, and analyzes the aftermath. John P. Frank and John F. Flynn, among Arizona's most prominent attorneys, represented Ernesto Miranda, an uneducated man arrested in 1963 for a series of sexual assaults, to which he confessed within hours. Miranda was convicted not on the basis of eyewitness testimony or physical evidence, but because he had incriminated himself without knowing it, and without knowing that he didn't have to. Mr. Stuart's research on the case included interviews with dozens of people directly concerned with the Miranda decision. Gary Stuart has tried over a hundred cases in state and federal jurisdictions, is author of The Ethical Trial Lawyer, Ethical Litigation, and the Gallup 14 (a novel), and has taught as an adjunct faculty member at both U of A and ASU law schools. Copies of the Miranda book may be purchased at the U of A bookstore.
