After he pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and robbery, and was sentenced to a term of 25 years-to-life by the New York County Supreme Court, David Andrango appealed claiming that the statements he had made to cops, before he had been "Mirandized," weren't admissible at his criminal trial.

Because he hadn't been handcuffed or restrained, went with the officers voluntarily to the precinct, and, since the questions were "investigatory rather than accusatory," the Appellate Division, First Department, could discern no irregularity and was of the view the guy's pre- and post-Miranda utterances could be utilized.

Shut up.
