Brief description:

Petitioner/Defendant-Appellee Randall Strong, Jr. (Petitioner) filed an Application for Writ of Certiorari (Application) seeking review of the judgment of the Intermediate Court of Appeals (ICA) pursuant to its November 25, 2009 published opinion.  The ICA vacated the Circuit Court of the First Circuit’s April 7, 2008 “Order Granting in Part and Denying in Part [Petitioner’s] Motion to Suppress Evidence and Statements, Findings of Fact, and Conclusions of Law.”  In his Application, Petitioner argues that the ICA gravely erred in holding that the police adequately apprised Petitioner of his constitutional rights and that Petitioner validly waived these rights when the police told Petitioner at the time his Miranda rights were read and waived that they would be questioning Petitioner about one particular crime but subsequently questioned Petitioner on three other crimes.
