US v. Carson, No. 08-3625

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on October 06, 2009 3:58 PM

Conviction of defendant for armed bank robbery is affirmed where: 1) the affidavit was ultimately sufficient to support the determination of probable cause for the warrant; 2) defendant's contention that the affidavit supporting the application for the warrant contained material false statements is rejected; and 3) defendant's argument that his confession should have been suppressed because the large quantities of drugs and alcohol he ingested prior to his arrest and that his confession invalidated his waiver of his Miranda rights is rejected, and if defendant was not under any influence that would diminish his capacity, there is no circumstance that would lead the court to question the validity of his Miranda waiver, under any standard of review.
