Alfred v. State

Facts:

Defendant appealed from a judgment of the Circuit for Baltimore (Maryland) convicting him of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol. He argued that the trial court had erred in denying his motion to suppress the fruits of a search that yielded a key to his van, which was subsequently searched, and a statement he had made to the officer admitting to being drunk.

Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:
  • When the issue of pre-arrest searches has arisen, Maryland courts have upheld them so long as a lawful arrest followed the search. As to how quickly the arrest must follow the search, Maryland 's appellate courts have approved searches when the arrest occurred immediately after the search, and when it occurred a few minutes later.
  • For purposes of Miranda, "interrogation" includes not only express questioning but its functional equivalent. The functional equivalent of interrogation includes any words or actions on the part of the police that the police should know are reasonably likely to elicit an incriminating response from the suspect. In determining whether the police should have known that their words or actions would elicit an incriminating response from the suspect, courts must consider the intent of the police in making the statement or performing the action, whether the police had knowledge of a suspect's unusual susceptibility to persuasion, and whether the police invited the suspect to respond to their statements or actions. Indeed, interrogation must reflect a measure of compulsion above and beyond that inherent in custody itself, and a suspect's incriminating response must be the product of words or actions on the part of police.
