Maple v. Superintendant SCI Albion

The Third Circuit reversed the District Court’s grant of habeas relief. The defendant filed a habeas corpus petition and argued that the police had violated his Miranda rights by getting confessions that tainted the trial. The District Court agreed, and the Third circuit reversed, ruling that the case against the defendant “was very strong. Even if the trial court should have suppressed his confession, any error was harmless. The defendant doubtless would have been convicted of first-degree murder”.
