State in the Interest of A.S. (A-58/59-09)

State in the Interest of A.S. (A-58/59-09) 7-29-10

Upon consideration of the totality of the
circumstances, A.S.’s confession was not knowingly,
intelligently, and voluntarily given. In addition,
the confession by far was the most damning piece of
evidence against A.S. and thus the court cannot say
that there was no reasonable possibility that its
introduction into evidence contributed to the
delinquency adjudication, and so, in the particular
circumstances presented in this case, the Court is
constrained to reverse A.S.’s conviction and remand
for new proceedings.
