Judge Tena Campbell – Motion to Supress denied

2006 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 57122


Judge Tena Campbell

During an interview with investigators at a police station, Defendant Alden Chee made incriminating statements that were later memorialized in a letter of apology written by Mr. Chee in the presence of the investigators. Mr. Chee argued that his rights, as articulated in Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966), were violated during the police station interview.

Additionally, Mr. Chee argued that any incriminating statements that he made during that interview, as well as his confession, were involuntary. On those grounds, Mr. Chee moved to suppress all incriminating statements made during that interview, as well as the letter of apology.

The court concluded that Mr. Chee was not in custody during the interrogation, and therefore the investigators were not obligated to read him his Miranda rights. Additionally, while the investigators utilized subterfuge in their efforts to obtain a confession, that subterfuge did not amount to undue police coercion and did not render Mr. Chee’s statements, or his confession, involuntary.

Motion to suppress denied.

    Another world out there exists that some people don’t believe in or are completely oblivious to. The United States of America is truly blind. A spirit named Jesus Christ or God watches over all of us, right? How can this be when you don’t believe in this other world that exists? God knows of us all.
