2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Miranda v. Arizona, which recognized a criminal suspect’s right to be advised of his or her Constitutional right against self-incrimination and right to counsel.  As part of the 2016 Law Day observation, the Rhode Island Bar Association organized a series of classroom presentations around the state, pairing Rhode Island lawyers with members of the judiciary and law enforcement representatives. Robert Clark Corrente spoke to a lively audience of students at North Providence High School, along with Superior Court Judge Richard Licht, about the lessons learned over the past 50 years of providing Miranda warnings to criminal suspects in police custody, and state and federal sentencing issues.
