Duquesne Law Review


Creating a specific exception to its 1966 decision in Miranda v. Arizona, the United States Supreme Court has held that there is no constitutional bar to admitting into evidence a custodial suspect's statements and the evidence subsequently discovered, where the exigencies of the situation demonstrate that the police officer's failure to recite the Miranda warnings, prior to questioning the suspect, is reasonably prompted by a concern for public safety.

New York v. Quarles, 104 S. Ct. 2626 (1984).
