Following a contested hearing and briefing by both parties, a Judge recently ruled that the statements made by DeVore’s client should be suppressed as they were taken without proper warning given. The Judge ruled that the police failed to properly Mirandize or warn DeVore’s client that anything he said can and will be used against him in a court of law. The Judge further ruled that the statements were taken while the defendant was ‘in custody’ and that the statements were incriminating to the defendant. As a result, the State will not be able to use the defendant’s statements as evidence against him at trial.
