interrogation

interrogation
In criminal law, the process of questions propounded by police to person arrested or suspected to seek solution of crime. Such person is entitled to be informed of his rights, including right to have counsel present, and the consequences of his answers. If the police fail or neglect to give these warnings, the questions and answers are not admissible in evidence at the trial or hearing of the arrested person. Miranda v. State of Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 86 S.Ct. 1602, 16 L.Ed.2d 694.
As conceptualized in the Miranda decision of the United States Supreme Court, constitutionally protected interrogation must reflect a measure of compulsion above and beyond that inherent in custody itself. Rhode Island v. Innis, R.I., 446 U.S. 291, 100 S.Ct. 1682, 1688, 64 L.Ed.2d 297.

Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 86 S.Ct. 1602, 16 L.Ed.2d 694; Brewer v. Williams, 430 U.S. 387, 97 S.Ct. 1232.
