Court Excludes Confession of Cleveland, PA Man Charged with Sex Offense

A Cleveland, Pennsylvania man was arrested in Erie, PA for an alleged sex offense. He faced a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison if convicted at trial.

The police read “Miranda” warnings to the suspect, and he initially agreed to waive his right to a lawyer. After some questioning by the police, however, he changed his mind and told the police that he would like to speak with a lawyer. Nevertheless, he continued to answer questions. As a result, he made statements that tended to prove that he may have been guilty.

A suppression motion was filed by Erie criminal defense lawyer Tim George. After an evidentiary hearing, the court ruled that most of what the man told the police could not be used against him at trial.

Mr. George and his entire office staff were very kind and helping me through my first ever experience with the law. He was able to get me exactly what he said he would in the outcome of my trial. The entire staff was very informative and kept me up to date on everything. Very pleased with my experience and would most definately recommend him to others.
