Stationhouse Fight Not Assertion of Right to Remain Silent – State v. Milledge

In today’s Appellate Division ruling in State v. Milledge, the Court held that a stationhouse fight with detectives did not amount to a de facto assertion of the right to remain silent by the defendant. Accordingly, the continued interrogation of the defendant following the fracas was proper and the defendant’s subsequent confession ruled admissible.
