Although Alton A. Dunn didn't think statements made while in police custody could be used at his trial, the Monroe County Supreme Court didn't agree.
While it was undisputed that Dunn hadn't been " Mirandized " when he was first questioned by the authorities, after an hour-long break in the interrogation process, Dunn was advised of his rights, and it was only then that the guy began "spilling the beans."
Since no incriminating statements were made prior to the break, the Appellate Division, Fourth Department, thought Dunn's request had been properly denied.
Is Dunn done?
