Riley v. United States

Riley v. United States, 923 A.2d 868 (D.C. 2006) - Court ruled that defendant arrested on warrant obtained after U.S. Attorney filed criminal complaint charging one count of first-degree murder did not have Sixth Amendment right to counsel, and that, in response to ambiguous rights waiver, he asserted his right to remain silent, but not his right to counsel. Subsequent waiver after nearly 12 hours in detention and numerous attempts by investigators to elicit confession was valid.
