Does Delay In Arraignment Render Defendant's Statement Involuntary ?

People v. Carbonaro (21 NY2d 271 [1967]) supports the argument that a delay in arraignment does not render defendant's statement involuntary. The delay in Carbonaro was a total of 28 hours from his arrest to arraignment. In People v. Carbonaro (21 NY2d 271 [1967]), the Court found consideration of the delay to be a relevant factor in assessing the voluntariness of defendant's statement, concluding that such delay was "unquestionably unnecessary" given the evidence available upon which to charge him earlier, but was properly given "little weight" in light of the overwhelming evidence of guilt, including identifications by several eyewitnesses and incriminating physical evidence.
