    The state hasn't says whether it will try to admit the confession via  the Quarles exception/public safety exception or not. If they do, the exception probably covers it (and it seems way more unreasonable in the ACTUAL Quarles case to me than in this one). If they don't, they've not violated the 5th amendment even if you throw out Quarles as precedent.
