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:

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