1. Rogers, Richard., Rogstad, Jill. and Blackwood, Hayley. "“Everyone Knows Their Miranda Rights:” Implicit Assumptions and Countervailing Evidence" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, TBA, San Antonio, TX, <Not Available>. 2019-06-18 <>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: The validity of Miranda waivers is routinely overlooked by legal professionals based on the implicit assumption that everyone knows their Miranda rights as a result of intense media exposure. Using a simple Miranda Quiz, countervailing data demonstrate major errors in Miranda understanding by recently arrested detainees. While exhibiting a slightly better performance, upper-level undergraduates show a similar pattern of errors. For example, substantial numbers of both groups felt (1) their silence would be incriminating evidence and (2) questioning would still continue after asserting their right to counsel. These data have direct implications for knowing and intelligent waivers of Miranda rights.
