City of Cleveland v. Benjamin S. Oles, Case Nos. 2016-0172 and 2016-0282
Eighth District Court of Appeals (Cuyahoga County)
- Does investigative questioning of a driver in a police vehicle's front seat during a routine traffic stop rise to the level of custodial interrogation incurring the protections guaranteed by the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Miranda v. Arizona (1966)?
- Was it improper for the trial court to suppress evidence gathered during field sobriety tests because that evidence was obtained independently of statements made to an officer when driver was in seated in patrol vehicle?
