Law Updates for March 19, 2010

Day, Jr., 35 FLW 563, 4th DCA, 3-19-10, Confession case - Totality of the circumstances, where interviewer made promises of leniency, casual nexus between the def's statements to prove that the statement was product of coercive police conduct. Many offers of help and implying authority to influence the process. Improper "fruits of hope": unrealistic hope that the investigator interviewing him would truly help the defendant. Confession thrown out. amazing facts

Bleiweis, 35 FLW 586, 4th DCA, error to deny bail without permitting argument of counsel on issue of whether the proof is evident and the presumption is great. Writ of habeus corpus granted and assigned to a different judge.
