    as it's a 5th not a 4th amendment protection, as has been explained to you.  If the PSE doesn't apply (either by its terms or because of the request for counsel),  his statements couldn't be used against him, but they could against other people; they could be used for impeachment if he takes the stand at trial; and physical or documentary evidence discovered as a result of the non-mirandized statements can also be used.

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.

    •  Thanks for the response...again. (0+ / 0-)

      Was the condescension really necessary though?

      as has been explained to you
      I made a statement about this on a different thread and you corrected me.  I appreciated your response and if I am not mistaken, I think I rec'ed it.  It is not like we had some argument about it or even a disagreement.

      I didn't realize that once you, someone who I do not know, answered a question, it would be some kind of affront for me to pose a similar question to a lawyer who I have followed for years and who I have a great deal of respect for.  

      Next time I will try to remember your impressive status and impatience with having to repeat yourself so you will not have to explain it to me again.  I am kind of slow like that.

        i was more annoyed that it seemed to elicit blatantly incorrect responses from people who assumed the answer is different without examining it.
