People v. Torres, 072610

Reversed a conviction due to lack of a Miranda warning in a case where an initially non-custodial interrogation became custodial when police essentially told the defendant they would not leave, and he could not go home, until he told them the truth about whether he had molested a five-year-old girl. In reversing, the appeals court determined that a motion to suppress the defendant's confession under Miranda likely would have succeeded.
