In an opinion by Justice hugo l. black, the Supreme Court held that a conviction based on incriminating admissions obtained by police in the absence of notification of the miranda rules, even though the prisoner was at home, away from the coercive surroundings of a stationhouse, violated the right against self-incrimination.
