Edwards v. State

In Edwards v. State, 842 P.2d 1281 (Alaska App. 1992) the suspect argued his statement to officers was involuntary because the police officers threatened him with immediate arrest on a murder charge if he failed to talk to them. (Id. at 1285.) The Court found that, despite the threat, the statements were not involuntary: "The main impediment to such a finding that the statements were involuntary is that Edwards, despite police pressure to talk, said nothing to directly inculpate himself in the crime."
