People v. Arroya

In People v. Arroya, 988 P.2d 1124, 1131 (Colo. 1999) the Supreme Court of Colorado held that a trial court was required to consider a wide range of factors in determining whether a suspect's statement was a clear invocation of the right to remain silent. These factors include the plain meaning of the suspect's words, the officer's response to those words, the suspect's speech patterns, content of the interrogation, demeanor and tone of the interrogating officer, the suspect's conduct during questioning, the point at which the suspect invoked the right to remain silent, the questions which drew the invocation, the officer's response and who was present during questioning.
