Hutto v. Ross - 429 U.S. 28 (1976)
U.S. Supreme Court
Hutto v. Ross, 429 U.S. 28 (1976)
Hutto v. Ross
Decided November 1, 1976
429 U.S. 28
Respondent's confession to a crime was not per se inadmissible at his criminal trial as being involuntary merely because it was made as a result of an agreed-upon but unexecuted plea bargain that did not call for such a confession. Where the confession does not appear to have been the result of "any direct or implied promises'" or any coercion on the prosecution's part, it was not involuntary.
Certiorari granted; 531 F.2d 94, reversed and remanded.
