US v. Robinson, No. 08-4251

District court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress a statement he gave to law enforcement agents implicating himself in criminal firearms trafficking is affirmed as, district court did not commit clear error in finding that defendant initiated conversation with law enforcement, and thus, the law enforcement agents did not interrogate defendant in violation of his Fifth Amendment right to counsel, and the court properly denied defendant's motion to suppress his incriminating statements.
