Scenario Part 1

On March 12, 2014, at approximately 2200 hours, the Sunnyville, Utah Police Department received a 911 call of an armed robbery at 201 SE 2nd Ave. Upon the police arriving on scene, Victim 1, Luke Roberts, had been shot in the head and deceased. Victim 2, Liam O'Neil, was pistol-whipped. Both victims were robbed of their cell phones and wallets at gunpoint. Liam O'Neil was able to identify both suspects and the getaway vehicle. A short distance away, police stopped the suspect vehicle with two Caucasian males that matched the description provided by Mr. O'Neil. After the two suspects were positively identified, they were arrested and brought to the police station for interviews.
Before the police interviewed the suspects, they read them their Miranda rights. Suspect 1 refused to speak to the police, invoked his Miranda rights, and stated that he wanted a lawyer. The police began asking Suspect 2 specific questions about the crime. Suspect 2 stated “I’m not sure I should talk to you,” but then hesitantly proceeded to answers questions, making several incriminating statements.

Review the Miranda v. Arizona case using the Web resources assigned to this class.

  • What legal aspects from the scenario need to be addressed?
  • What legal aspects may come up at the trial?
  • Is his statement of "I am not sure if I want to talk anymore" enough to invoke his Miranda Rights? If not, what must the police officer do next

Institution Affiliation



In law enforcement, some legal aspects are considered during the arrest and integrations
of a suspect of a crime. Before the detention of an individual suspected of committing or being
involved in offense, police are supposed to have a warrant for arrest (Henham and Behrens,
2009). Moreover, during investigations, a suspect deserves to be informed of his or her Miranda
rights. The primary purpose of the Miranda rights to protect citizens from giving selfincriminating information that can be used to lay the blame on them a law court. Therefore, as
the officers of law try to preserve peace and safety for all individuals they are also expected to
protect people deemed to be criminals...
