PEOPLE v. LEAL, H023031

Defendant's attempt to impute legislative intent from one statute to another fails, and the prosecution relied upon a legally sufficient theory in establishing the element of duress in a child molestation case. Where defendant was not in custody at the time of his statements, Miranda warnings were not required.
