Delay of More Than 48 Hours After Arrest In Michigan

According to the United States Supreme Court, a delay of more than forty-eight hours after arrest is presumptively unreasonable, absent extraordinary circumstances. In Michigan, this right to be taken before a magistrate for arraignment without unnecessary delay implicates two sections in the Declaration of Rights of our constitution: 11, which provides that "the person, house, papers and possessions of every person shall be secure from unreasonable searches and seizures," and 17 which provides that "no person shall be . . . deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law." 19 See Const 1963, art 1, 11 and 17
