Kentucky AG Ask U.S. Supreme Court to Consider School Miranda Rights Case
The Kentucky attorney general's office has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to consider a case involving whether students must be informed of their rights before being questioned at school.
Attorney General Jack Conway asked the justices Tuesday to overturn a Kentucky Supreme Court decision from April. In that case from Nelson County, the state justices concluded that students must be informed of their legal rights — including the right to remain silent — before being questioned by school administrators working with police or school resource officers.
Conway says school administrators shouldn't be required to advise students of their rights — a practice known as Mirandizing — simply because a school resource officer may be present during an investigation of school-related issues.
