Doyle Error

Doyle Error

It is a Doyle Error for the prosecution to use the defendant's silence following a Miranda warning against him to suggest that he is guilty of the alleged crime. In other words, what you say can be used against you, but that you didn't say anything cannot be used against you. The term “Doyle Error” comes from the United States Supreme Court case entitled Doyle v. Ohio (1976) 426 U.S. 610.
