People v. Traubert

In People v. Traubert (Colo. 1980), 608 P.2d 342, when the accused stated "I think I need to see an attorney," the court held that although the statement was neither sophisticated nor in a legally proper form, it was sufficient to put the police officers on notice that the suspect intended to exercise his constitutional rights to counsel and at that point the police should have ceased all questioning until the accused was given a reasonable opportunity to contact his attorney.
