The Kentucky Supreme Court is considering a case that would require school officials to read Miranda rights to students being questioned. WBIR News Channel 10 reports that the case stems from a 2009 incident in which a student appealed his sentence because he wasn’t read his Miranda rights before admitting to a school official and school resource officer to giving away two prescription pain pills. He was charged with illegally dispensing a controlled substance and given 45 days in adult jail.
