State v. Penna

Docket number

Relying on the Sixth Amendment of the federal constitution, the majority held that a suspect does not have to be reminded of his Miranda rights or given them again to validly waive a prior invocation, receding from prior case law. The dissent would have held otherwise, reading Florida’s constitutional right against self-incrimination more expansively than its federal counterpart.
