"Ohio high court: Police get leeway to question juveniles."

"However, a divided Ohio Supreme Court ruled yesterday that juvenile criminal suspects are not entitled under state law to be represented by an attorney while being interrogated by officers."

"Justice Terrence O’Donnell, who wrote the court’s 4-3 opinion, emphasized that while criminal defendants have a federal constitutional right to legal counsel, state law does not separately grant that right to juveniles."

Of course this will be appealed to SCOTUS.

Do you think this will be a chance the Robert's Court will have to strike down that 'nasty and pesky' Miranda decision?

juveniles should be required to be represented by an attorney or a parent before the police can ask them a single question...talk about an open door for abuse, coercion, and duress.
