POLS 365 Escobedo v. Illinois 378 U.S. 478 (1964) Facts: Escobedo was interrogated by police in regards to his brother-in-law’s murder. During interrogation-Escobedo was denied access to his attorney despite repeatedly asking for him (6A). Similarly, his attorney was also denied access to him. The attorney even filed a complaint with the Commissioner. At no time was Escobedo informed of his Constitutional right to avoid self- incrimination (5A). During interrogation, Escobedo made a damaging statement that was admitted as evidence and ultimately contributed to his murder conviction. Procedure: A trial court convicted Escobedo of murder and the conviction was upheld by the Supreme Court of Illinois. The motion to suppress the self-incriminating statement made during interrogation was denied. Issue: 1. “Was the refusal by the police to honor [Escobedo’s] request to consult with his lawyer during the course of an interrogation” a violation of the 6A’s right to counsel clause?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
