State v. Rogers

In State v. Rogers, 143 Conn. 167, 170-71, 120 A.2d 409, cert. denied, 351 U.S. 952, 76 S. Ct. 850, 100 L. Ed. 1476 (1956), the Court held that a defendant's removal from jail to be questioned at the state's attorney's office on an unrelated robbery and murder was illegal. The court held that "proper court authorization should have been secured before the defendant was removed from the jail." Id., 173-74. The Court, however, did not suppress the defendant's subsequent statement made after the illegal detention. The court held that the question to be determined was whether the detention had "induced the defendant to make an involuntary and hence untrue statement." Id., 174.
