15-CV-008 Marshall v. Eckstein
Decision and Order granting petition for relief under § 2254
Petitioner filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, claiming that his state court conviction and sentence were imposed in violation of the Constitution. Petitioner, who was sixteen years old at the time of his arrest and interrogation, argued in his petition that the incriminating statements he made to detectives should have been suppressed because they were involuntary and obtained in violation of his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent under Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966). The court granted the petition for writ of habeas corpus.
