Moran v. Burbine
Citation:475 U.S. 412, 106 S.Ct. 1135, 89 L.Ed.2d 410 (1986)
Burbine was arrested for burglary but later implicated in a murder that happened a few months prior. Burbine’s sister called the public defender’s office and secured counsel for Burbine. The public defender called the police station and told the detectives division that she would act as Burbine’s counsel. She was told that the police were not going to question Burbine that night, but they did later interrogate him without letting him know that he had representation. The police read Burbine his Miranda rights, and Burbine waived his rights before confessing to the murder.
