State Supreme Court Upholds Lower Court Ruling On Miranda Rights

DETROIT (AP) – A Jackson County robbery suspect’s confession to a parole officer can be used against him, even though he wasn’t informed of his Miranda rights.

The state Supreme Court, in a 5-2 decision, overturned an appeals court ruling and upheld the conviction of Samuel Elliott.

He was jailed on a parole violation in 2010 when a parole officer questioned him about the robbery of a gas station without informing Elliott of his right to remain silent.

The Supreme Court says the parole officer wasn’t conducting a custodial interrogation at the time.
