State v. BraulickAnnotate this Case
Defendant was charged with two counts of attempted deliberate homicide. Before trial, Defendant moved to suppress statements he made while in custody, arguing that he was never informed of his right to remain silent and that all questioning by law enforcement should have ceased when he asked for an attorney. The district court denied the motion to suppress. Defendant was subsequently convicted on both counts of attempted homicide. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court did not err when it (1) denied Defendant’s motion to suppress, as the statements he made after he was in custody, after he requested an attorney, and before he was notified of his Miranda rights were spontaneous; and (2) denied Defendant’s motion to exclude one of the victims of the crime from the courtroom.
