Featuring Kent S. Scheidegger
April 22, 2013

On April 17, 2013, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Salinas v. Texas.  This case considers whether, when a suspect is silent in response to a single question during a voluntary interview with police before he has been arrested or read his Miranda rights, use of that silence at trial violates the Self-Incrimination Clause of the Fifth Amendment.

To discuss the case, we have Kent Scheidegger, who is the Legal Director of the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation.
