Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Criminal Procedure — Miranda warnings — custody
The State appeals the circuit court’s order granting a suppression motion. The State contends that the circuit court erred when it concluded that Jose Gutierrez-Hernandez was in custody for purposes of Miranda. This erroneous conclusion, the State argues, led to the erroneous suppression of statements police obtained from Gutierrez-Hernandez and subsequently obtained physical evidence. We conclude that, under the totality of the circumstances, Gutierrez-Hernandez was not in custody when the statements and evidence were obtained. Accordingly, we reverse. This opinion will not be published.
