Law Updates for May 14, 2010

J.M., 35 FLW 1103, 3RD DCA, Juveniles - Statement of juvenile in which he revealed his date of birth that was relevant to the case was properly admitted even if given pre-Miranda. Basic biographical information, and Miranda does not apply to a question to obtain basic booking information

Harris, 35 FLW 1007, 1st DCA, Other crimes evidence. Prosecution witness' non-responsive statement during cross that he changed his earlier statement to wit the def was not involved in the fraud as there was a warrant out for the def for a different offense, and witness did not believe the def's testimony in the matter was improper and irrelevant - harmful error.
