Criminal Practice – Voluntary Confession – Hospital Medications – Collateral Estoppel – Prior Burglary Conviction – Felony Murder (access required)

State v. Cornelius Even though defendant was in the hospital when he made three statements to the police, the state presented evidence that he was alert, oriented and able to interact with others; in fact, defendant was alert enough to make up a false story exonerating himself during his first police interview. Although defendant had been given Dilaudid before the first interview, the state presented evidence that, at the time of defendant’s first statement, the drug’s effects would have worn off.
