Jacksonville Juvenile Criminal Suspects are Entitled to Warnings Before Being Questioned by School Campus Police Officers

As a Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyer, I have represented juveniles that were questioned by police officers in their schools. Recently, in a 5-4 ruling, the United States Supreme Court addressed this issue. For the first time, the Court ruled that children questioned by police in school must be given Miranda rights before questioning. The Supreme Court released its decision in In J.D.B. v. North Carolina, 131 S.Ct. 2394 (2011), on June 16, 2011 (See United State Supreme Court Rules that Juvenile Criminal Defendant’s Constitutional Rights Were Violated by a Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyer).
