The consequences of this omission by the arresting authority could have some pretty powerful ramifications against the criminal case. It could also be so minor as to be a harmless error. I cannot really answer the question without any information about the surrounding facts and context of the case.

Please feel free to contact me and elaborate.

The only result of not giving the Miranda rights is that any confession is not admissible in court. It does NOT affect the charge.
