People v. Clark.

2020 CO 36. No. 20SA11. Criminal Law—Custodial Interrogation—Miranda Warnings.

May 11, 2020


The People filed this interlocutory appeal contesting the trial court’s order suppressing certain statements that defendant made to law enforcement during execution of a search warrant at his home and before his formal arrest. The People contended that the trial court erred in finding that defendant was in custody so as to trigger the requirements of Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 478-79 (1966), when he made the statements at issue.

The Supreme Court agreed with the People. Accordingly, the Court reversed the trial court’s suppression order and remanded the case for further proceedings.
