State v. Reigelsperger 2017 UT App 101 (June 22, 2017)

Jun 22, 2017

A criminal suspect involuntarily committed to a mental health facility by the state for reasons unrelated to the investigation is not in custody for Miranda purposes, because a reasonable suspect would feel free to end the interrogation, even if he or she could not leave the facility, and was not subject to coercive pressures usually present when officers take someone into custody.
