Texas 570 U.S._ (2013) Roberts Court (The Supreme Court of the United States). Summary of the Key Facts The police found two homicide victims that were brothers. They were shot and killed in their home. Shogun shell casings were recovered from the scene and the investigation led them to the defendant (Salinas). He agreed to go in for questioning and hand over his firearm for ballistics testing. Since he was not in custody he was not given Miranda warnings. The defendant answered questions but failed to answer reasoning The defendant who was an accused at the time remain silent for the most part of the interrogation and this does not mean an invocation of his right to remain quiet for purposes of Miranda v. Arizona. Provision of the response to the officer's question implied he had waived his right to remain silent. Moreover the police officers before questioning did not need to obtain an express waiver. The counsel's failure to object the closing arguments was ineffectiveness on his part and but he was not prejudiced by this ineffectiveness. Works Cited www.googlescholar.com Salinas v.
