Could Police Question Teen Murder Suspect Without Notifying His Attorney?
State of Ohio v. Damon L. Taylor, Case No. 2022-1069
Tenth District Court of Appeals (Franklin County)
- When a juvenile court transfers a minor's case to adult court, having found probable cause that the juvenile committed complicity to purposeful murder, can the adult court try and convict the offender of felony murder?
- If a juvenile requests the presence of an attorney before speaking to police, and the attorney notifies the police and prosecutor that the minor is represented, can the police months later question the minor without first notifying the attorney?
