Mark Rayford appeals the judgment of conviction entered after Rayford entered Alford no contest pleas to one count of first-degree reckless injury and one count of attempted homicide. Rayford argues that the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress his statement given to the police, which occurred after he was formally charged with two counts of attempted homicide, and an arrest warrant had issued. He contends that the trial court erred in finding that he never requested an attorney to represent him and, additionally, he submits, that even if he did not request an attorney, the police violated his constitutional rights by failing to tell him that formal criminal charges had been initiated against him before taking his statement.
