COURSE CONTENT: This course is an analysis of recent case law dealing with the law of confessions and admissions from suspects.  It includes, among many other topics, a discussion of Miranda, as it is applied today; an explanation of the rules concerning hearsay evidence and how they can be used by the police; and a discussion of the latest rules involving the mandatory electronic recording of the statements of a suspect.

The following are some of the questions that will be asked and answered in this presentation:

  • Can you use a confession taken from a suspect who has been illegally arrested?  
  • Is there a 5th Amendment right to counsel during a lineup or prior to taking a breathalyzer       examination? 
  • When is a suspect “in custody” for purposes of Miranda? 
  • Were the statements of the suspect made voluntarily? 
  • When is a suspect not entitled to counsel? 
  • What happens when an attorney demands to see his client? 
  • How do you deal with a juvenile who is being interrogated? 
  • What happens when the police fail to promptly bring a suspect before a judge for a probable cause hearing? 
  • How long must you wait before re-interrogating a suspect after he has invoked his right to remain silent? 
  • How do you overcome a suspect’s allegation that his statements were coerced by the police?
