Default State Supreme Court Takes Chunk From 5th Amendment

Catch 22. Waive your right to remain silent, and have your statements used against you without restriction, or remain silent and have your silence used against you anyway. One right at a time many will you have to lose before you declare independence?

The state Supreme Court in a 4-3 ruling said Tom needed to explicitly assert his right to remain silent before he was read his Miranda rights for the silence to be inadmissible in court.
