Criminal Practice – Juvenile – Miranda & Statutory Warnings – Custodial Interrogation – School Principal & Resource Officer (access required)

In re K.D.L. A 12-year-old boy's rights were violated when he was suspected of owning a bag of marijuana found in a classroom, he was questioned by the principal for six hours - most of that time in the presence of the school resource officer - and he was never warned of his Miranda or statutory juvenile rights. We reverse the trial court's denial of the juvenile's motion to suppress his statements. We vacate the adjudication of delinquency and remand for further proceedings.
