Kansas v. Ventris
No. 07-1356


    Kansas v. Ventris


    Criminal Law and Procedure, Sixth Amendment, Miranda Rights


    Whether a criminal defendant’s “voluntary statement obtained in the absence of a
    knowing and voluntary waiver of the [Sixth Amendment] right to counsel,” Michigan
    v. Harvey
    , 494 U.S. 344, 354 (1990), is admissible for impeachment purposes—a
    question the Court expressly left open in Harvey and which has resulted in a deep
    and enduring split of authority in the Circuits and state courts of last resort?
