Calaveras County DA statement regarding Fowler reversal.

Today the Calaveras County DA released the statement shown below on the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Face Book page.

There is a significant misstatement of the facts.  As you can research for yourself in the post I made on 2/22/18 that includes the entire Appellate Decision, the Court did not rely on CA Health and Welfare Code Section 625.6 for its decision.  It only references that section in footnote #10.  The court relied on various case law to find that the trial court relied, at least in part, on statements obtained when the rights of the defendant were violated by Calaveras County law enforcement and the F. B. I. in conjunction with the accused’s own parent.

Off site interrogation/unofficial detention by American Law Enforcement.

The link appearing below is to an article outlining the alleged existence of a warehouse in Chicago that is used as an unofficial location for interrogation in which detainees are allowed none of their constitutional rights to counsel.  I know from personal experience that the concept of an offsite location was used by local law enforcement.  At least one witness in a case was asked to appear in at a warehouse for questioning on a Saturday night.  The warehouse was not even in the same county as the incident being investigated.
