? He was escorted from his social studies classroom to a conference room by a
uniformed police officer.
He was question for 30 to 45 minutes in a closed-door room about some
He had been seen in possession of a digital camera that had been reported to have
He first denied any involvement in the break-ins
After further pressing he confessed to have been involved.
Legal implications of the case
? J.D.B. is been accused of breaking into peoples? home and stealing
? He is also been accused of been in possession of stolen property.
Ethical implications of the case
? J.D.B. was a minor at the time of questioning.
? He was not informed of the Miranda rules when been question.
? He was questioned in the absence of an attorney.
The defense argued?
? The evidence collected by the police violated the Miranda rules
? A child is susceptible to coercion in a custodial interrogation
? The Miranda Custody analysis invalidates evidence collected from a suspect if the
subject was not read their rights
? The defence argued that a child was not free to make rational decisions under
pressure from the police
? The inability to make free choices meant that evidence collected from the defendant
was not admissible
The Court Ruled. . .
? Age needs to be considered in an interrogation
? A police officer is competent to account for objective circumstances
? The Supreme Court referred the case to a lower court to determine
whether the defendant was in custody during the interrogation
? Does this ruling invalidate judgements prior to the case if underage defendants are
interrogated by the police?
? If the police collect evidence before they take a child into custody, is the evidence
? Since children are susceptible to police authority, is ?custody? a relevant part of the case?
? Is there a rationale for determining the essence of ?free will?? Since the Miranda rules are
based on free will, it follows that definition of the phrase is a slippery slope because even
adults can be susceptible to external pressure. At the same time, if an adult makes a decision
against their intuition to follow legal advice, does the decision manifest free will?
