On its surface, a case currently before the U.S. Supreme Court may seem to be legally trivial; it’s about a juvenile who stole from neighborhood houses. But J.D.B. v. North Carolina could redefine both the law’s “reasonable person” standard and what it means to be in custody. The case is...
My view is that if you are not free to leave, then you are in custody. Are students free to leave school? If not, they are always in custody. Let alone when there's an armed police officer in the room.
You might think that this standard would make it hard for police to interrogate children. Well, yes. Then police would interrogate fewer children. Or else they could try to get legislators to get rid of compulsory attendance laws. I'm OK with that. But perhaps I am not a Reasonable Person.
